The Ghost of Briar Rose by Anna Romer.

Everyone says the old mountainside house is haunted. Which is perfect because ghost hunter Cleary Branchwood knows it’s easy money. He’ll buy the property dirt cheap, flush out the poor wretch of a ghost they call Briar Rose, and resell for an unthinkable sum to investors from Melbourne. Simple, right?

But feisty Rose isn’t going anywhere till she solves the devastating crime that tethers her to the garden. A crime everyone says she committed. Only when she remembers will she be free to cross over and be with her true love William.

As Cleary and Rose join forces to solve the mystery and set her free, Rose glimpses the happiness she was denied in life. Could Cleary and his young daughter be the family she’s always yearned for? But as buried memories surface, Rose fears the monster lying dormant inside her will destroy the two people she’s come to love the most.

A heart-wrenching enemies to lovers mystery from bestseller Anna Romer.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
