The Secret of Pembrooke Park

The Secret of Pembrooke ParkAbigail Foster has stumbled on to a mystery that no one seems to want to rehash. When a financial fall reduces their budget dramatically, the Foster family is approached with an offer to good to be true: to live in the semi-abandoned home of distant relatives. With nothing to lose Abigail moves in to occupy a room that – like the rest of the home – has secrets of its own. When she begins to receive anonymous journal entries in the mail the mystery begins to unravel revealing horrifying secrets of greed, murder and lies.

After actually disliking a book by Julie Klassen I was just a teensy weensy hesitant about The Secret of Pembrooke Park fearing that – like its predecessor – it would leave much to be desired. Those fears seemed almost confirmed when starting out too. It was slow and very boring. But then it began to pick up. Soon the plot was moving swiftly on and I couldn’t put the darn book down. I stayed up late (again) in order to finish the story. It’s definitively a keeper. While I did see some of the off things coming there were a few twists and turns that left me with my mouth hanging open over the shock. Another great read by a fabulous author.

    • It’s engrossing once you get through the beginning. And nothing like The Dancing Master. Ugh, that book. It seemed so very out of character when compared with Klassen’s other books. Hope you enjoy her latest!
