    I didn't quite know what to expect when I started this book, which is always fun because I start out with an open mind and enjoy the surprises on my reading journey. Clara and Ben and the other characters that are invited to Bleakly Manor don't know what to expect either which enhanced...

    Right off the bat? or rather, the balustrade, I give this book five? ten? twenty stars? Can I do that? I?m calling it 35 stars. Why? Because I?m giving these stars ?dog years.? Seven times five? Okay, so why am I piling on the praise for 12 Days at Bleakly Manor? ...

    I've had the pleasure of reading some unique Christmas reads this year, and 12 Days at Bleakly Manor is no exception! This story is a fun mystery, full of an intriguing cast of secondary characters and endearing leads. I wasn't expecting the slightly spooky feeling to the plot, and I t...

    I was in the mood for a fun Christmassy book and this hit the note I was looking for - an historical romance with a dash of mystery. Two wronged lovers, both believing the other guilty of cruel betrayal are invited to Bleakley Manor along with six other misfits. All have been invited b...

    My thanks to NetGalley and Barbour Publishing, Inc. for an eARC copy of this book to read and review. This book wasn't quite a good fit for me. I loathe Charles Dicken's writing, so I have no idea how the characters and story line of this book tie in with anything of his. Which wasn...

    A sweet Christmas story, easily read in one evening. It?s a combination of historical fantasy, Gothic romance, and mystery story, set in a big ole English edifice, Bleakly Manor. Me thinks it owes a bit to Agatha Christie?s And Then There Were None, as a number of people are anonym...

    This story is packed to the gills with an excellent atmosphere of old-country-house and Golden Age mystery. The story has plenty of action; guests are invited to Bleakly Manor to stay the twelve days of Christmas in exchange for a prize. Clara, impoverished by an embezzlement, need the...

    This book is fun, quirky, and not at all what I expected. Yes, the book is set during Christmas and the days following, but it really isn't a story about the holiday. Instead, Michelle Griep explores relationships and how we perceive people, both those long acquainted but separated for...

    Wow, what a refreshingly unique tale of mystery and romance set over the holidays in 1850's, England! I enjoyed following this group of colorful characters through the Twelve Days of Christmas in the manor house, each with their own motivation for being there. A bit of other classic ta...

    This was unlike any book I?ve read. Well, almost. In parts, it made me think of ?The Westing Game? by Ellen Raskin. A group of people have been summoned to Bleakly Manor, each promised a gift?that is, if they can endure the twelve days. Intrigue and mystery weaves through the d...
