12 Days of Bleakly Manor by Michelle Griep


Bleakly Manor COVEREngland, 1851: When Clara Chapman receives an intriguing invitation to spend Christmas at an English manor home, she is hesitant yet feels compelled to attend—for if she remains the duration of the twelve-day celebration, she is promised a sum of five hundred pounds. But is she walking into danger? It appears so, especially when she comes face to face with one of the other guests—her former fiancé, Benjamin Lane. Imprisoned unjustly, Ben wants revenge on whoever stole his honor. When he’s given the chance to gain his freedom, he jumps at it—and is faced with the anger of the woman he stood up at the altar. Brought together under mysterious circumstances, Clara and Ben discover that what they’ve been striving for isn’t what ultimately matters. What matters most is what Christmas is all about . . . love.

My review:

I enjoyed this book! It was a fun read. I thought it was an interesting twist on the Christmas Carol.  It was a story of love, loss, mystery and second chances. The character’s were interesting and aptly named.  Each person was described well. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

I recommend this book to my family and friends.

I received this book from the publisher to read and give my honest review.
