The Secret of Pembrooke Park

The Secret of Pembrooke Park
Julie Klassen
Abigail is the practical daughter who holds the family together. So when a business venture that she recommended to her family falls apart, she feels it her duty to help rescue the family finances. The agent for Pembrooke Park approaches them with a lease offer that is too good to pass up in their current condition. Abigail finds herself alone with the servants as they try to bring the park back to it's former glory. The home has been sitting abandoned for 18 years amidst rumors of ghosts, murder, and treachery. Abigail hears strange sounds in the night, arguments and rumors, and the ramblings of an old woman. Hopefully she can piece together the puzzle before something tragic happens.

I loved this book. I've read books by this author before and enjoyed them, but this one is now my favorite. The book is large and could appear daunting. But never once did I feel bogged down in details or slow parts. The story fit together like a puzzle and kept me intrigued. It has elements of romance, history, and suspense. Several times I was surprised by the twists the author took with the plot. The characters fit with the time period and were captivating.

I received this book free of charge from Book Club Network in exchange for my review.
