The Secret of Pembrooke Park by Julie Klassen

I really enjoyed this book.  Abigail Fosters family has recently lost most of their fortune, and they have been forced to seek a new home.  During their search they are approached with an offer that is too good to be true.  Soon they find themselves moving into a manor house that has been abandoned for almost 20 years. Soon they start to hear rumors about what happened to the former occupants and also what might be hidden in the home.  What is in store for Abigail and her family?

I really liked Abigail.  She is a very interesting, real character.  She has her good and bad parts and she is portrayed in a convincing manner.  I also generally liked the person that she was.  The book itself kept me guessing.  I wasn't sure how things would turn out in the end.  The mystery was interesting.  I liked learning the back history of the home and Pembrooke family.  I felt like the book had a good pace, and it revealed things at a good rate.  Not to fast, but also enough to keep you interested and guessing.  I would give this book 4/5 stars.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House.
