The Wrong Girl by C.J. Archer Book Summary

"This is one of my favourite books I’ve read this year... I can’t praise it enough... The real stand out for this was the writing and the character voice." ~ The Moonlight Library

"The writing in The Wrong Girl was beautiful. There were so many quotes that I wanted to write down, and keep... The world building, and the plot drew me in from the get go, and didn’t falter until the last sentence." ~ Books For A Delicate Eternity

"This was one fantastic read! A really fascinating story which I couldn't put down, so this is easily a 5 stars." ~ Tea Party Princess

It's customary for Gothic romance novels to include a mysterious girl locked in the attic. Hannah Smith just wishes she wasn't that girl. As a narcoleptic and the companion to an earl's daughter with a strange affliction of her own, Hannah knows she's lucky to have a roof over her head and food in her belly when so many orphans starve on the streets. Yet freedom is something Hannah longs for. She did not, however, want her freedom to arrive in the form of kidnapping.

Taken by handsome Jack Langley to a place known as Freak House, she finds herself under the same roof as a mad scientist, his niece, a mute servant and Jack, a fire starter with a mysterious past. They assure Hannah she is not a prisoner and that they want to help her. The problem is, they think she's the earl's daughter. What will they do when they discover they took the wrong girl?


When I set out to write the Freak House series, I wanted to put my own spin on the Gothic novels of the Victorian era. I've always loved their creepiness, the secrets, and the romance too, but I wanted to see the story from the perspective of the character that is often present but never the heroine - the girl kept in the attic.

I hope you'll enjoy this trilogy as much as I enjoyed writing it.


The Wrong Girl (C.J. Archer) Book Reviews


It was alrightI mean i liked it, i liked the story and all but the main girl was so noisy it was irritating. She was so DESPERATE to learn about jack’s past, like everyone was telling her its his privacy stop, but she just wouldn’t stop. That really irritated me because she’s our main character and I expected more of her than a noisy girl who thinks so much.Score: 3/5

Hate itI don't like it.... one the author ripped off the cover of the book from the first book in the Atoras series which it Rosaline dragomire in the Atoras serious by Amy miles, and I just don't like the book I don't like the story I wish I could rate it with negative stars but I have rated it with one..Score: 1/5

Question!This was a pretty good book, (just a little more romance would've been nice), however, the girl on the cover looks identical to the girl on the cover of Forbidden by Amy Milles (I think that's how it was spelled) and I was just wondering why..Score: 3/5

The Wrong GirlThis book was pretty great. At first it wasn't too interesting, but once it gets to the later chapters it starts having different plot twists that are exciting to watch play out. If you're looking for a shorter paranormal book to read, I suggest this. Even though I would still likes some answers to this story, I might be fine just not knowing. But overall, it's a great book, there's also a little bit of tiny romance in it. 😏😘.Score: 4/5

Blown awayAmazing style and a wonderful depiction of the times. Sensationally written with beautiful diction. I would give it a 4.5 if I could find the option.

A great storyI love the fantasy genre, but these days it’s hard to find anything that isn’t about vampires, werwolves, or witches. And even then, books written by inexperienced authors can often read like bad fan fiction. This was a refreshing change and a well written story. I read the full trilogy in a week. I did dock one star because I felt the romance between Jack and Hannah was a bit cheesy. No build to their relationship, they unrealistically fall immediately into love without really knowing each other. Jack came off as needy and obsessive. Felt like a romance story for teenagers. The rest of the story was delightful though..Score: 4/5

Bait n switchNothing detracts from my enjoyment of a story more than finding out it's just a lengthy intro sample. It should clearly state this at the beginning so as not to surprise the reader that has invested hours into the story. I deliberately do not buy stories from authors that make this a common practise. I do respect, and buy, from authors that clearly define the selection as just a sample or intro..Score: 1/5

The Wrong GirlI’ve been looking for something different and unpredictable to read lately. The Wrong Girl is different but it lacks the depth in the characters and the plot. That made the story very predictable and I’m disappointed about that. To build up suspense, one needs to lay hints along the way of story telling, not simply showing the readers a girl with temper who was suspicious of everyone around her. Overall, 4/5 for the idea..Score: 4/5

The Wrong GirlCJ Archer 1Y. The Wrong Girl 6/10 Free iBook. First in a trilogy. Not asking the obvious important questions when they have opportunity is repeated fatal storyline flaw. Hannah is kidnapped after spending her first 18 years locked in the attic with the Earl's daughter Violet, who spontaneously and uncontrollably starts fires. Hannah herself suffers from narcolepsy (falls suddenly sleep in times of stress). She is very attracted to Jake who is also a fire starter, and it turns out she is actually the fire starter, but everyone lied to her about it. Why does Mr Langley and his ex-business partner want her? Story doesn't end. Meh..Score: 3/5

Wrong girlI liked and enjoyed reading this book but I often found it a little predictable. I would've also like for their to be more romance but I guessed that wouldn't work since its based in the Victorian era. I did however find it very interesting to read I only wish that we knew more about the what happens after the ending. I read the short story that subscribers get however I found that to not be very interesting as it didn't provide enough information. I do like the authors writing style and think that they are unique stories but I was thirsty for more information that wasn't provided. Though this book isn't a must read, can't put it down kind of book I did enjoy it and found that it interesting especially with all the quirks that kept on happening in the story though they're some boring buts the story really captures your interest in places and one I would recommend as well as the author..Score: 5/5
