In this dark southern gothic novel, a young woman meets a man who may be more than he seems. After the death of her mother, 17-year-old Rave Weathersby gives up her dream of becoming a fashion designer, barely surviving life in the South Carolina lowlands. To make ends meet, Raven works after school as a seamstress creating stunning works of fashion that often rival the great names of the day. Instead of making things easier on the high school senior, her stepdad's drinking leads to a run in with the highly reclusive heir to the Maddox family fortune, Gideon Maddox. But Raven's stepdad is drying out and in no condition to attend the meeting with Maddox. So Raven volunteers to take his place and offers to repay the debt in order to keep the only father she's ever known out of jail. Gideon Maddox agrees, outlining an outrageous demand: Raven must live in his home for a year while she designs for Maddox Industries' clothing line, signing over her creative rights. Her handsome young captor is arrogant and infuriating to the nth degree, and Raven can't imagine working for him, let alone sharing the same space for more than five minutes. But nothing is ever as it seems. Is Gideon Maddox the monster the world believes him to be? And can he stand to let the young seamstress see him as he really is?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous, haunting, and hard to put down Gorgeous, haunting, and hard to put down, Julie Reece's THE ARTISANS is a stunning reimagining of a familiar story. I fell instantly for the wounded, mysterious Gideon, and the stubborn and resourceful Rae. This book is everything you want from a gothic: an atmospheric and secluded mansion, secrets at every turn, and a swoony romance. Add in an loveable cast of secondary characters and some genuinely scary scenes, and you've got a truly unforgettable story. I loved every second!
