    1. Disclaimer: I received a free electronic copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.The Sleeping Angel by Margarita Morris is a young adult supernatural mystery that perfectly mixes past and present to reveal the sinister secrets surrounding Highgate Cemetery.In the present, the novel follows Lauren and Tom as they search for the connection between Isabelle Hart, a woman who used to live in Lauren's house, and the death of Tom's father. In the past, the novel recounts the life of Isabel [...]

    2. Brilliantstoryline. Held me enthralled to the point where I couldn't put it down. Covers two timelines with diary type input from maids, grace digger and family. Never read this author before but will look out for other books by her.

    3. Simple storyThis is a simple story that might have done better as a short story rather than a novel. The plot line is thin, and the characters are not well developed. However, if you're interested in Victorian social mores or behavior around death, you might find it of interest.

    4. The Sleeping Angel is an atmospheric and exciting Young Adult mystery set – unusually - in three different time periods. Lauren is a teenager living in present day Highgate in London. A game with a Ouija board gives Lauren and her friends a mysterious message, apparently from the past, revealing a name – Isabelle Hart.Tom’s father has just died in a car accident, or, as Tom believes, a murder made to look like an accident. As Tom begins to investigate his father’s death, he uncovers clue [...]

    5. 2.5 stars I would have been happy with just the story of Isabelle - and not of the weird murder mystery. I understand the author's intent, but surely there's another option for finding an old diary and getting the two main characters together. That part just didn't work for me at all.

    6. Thank you for putting Isabell`s story into words. This was a tale I knew had to end, but I really didn't want it to. Kudos to your proof readers, they did a marvelous job of editing. Keep on writing.
