Refuge On Crescent Hill by Melanie Dobson~Book Review

by adustyframe ~ October 27th, 2011

I received a free copy of this book from Kregel Publications to review on my blog.

As you can tell by the number of reviews I had last week, I got a little bit behind! I just finally picked this up last weekend and I’m hooked!

It took me just a little bit to get into it and figure out the characters, but I can’t stop reading it! Unfortunately I haven’t quite finished it so I can’t tell you if I’m happy with the ending or not!

So far, I like the characters and story line. I’m curious to know how it turns out and if the mystery is solved! Melanie has done a good job with this book. I am enjoying her writing so far.

I’ve not read anything by Melanie Dobson yet so once again, I’m happy to find a new author that I enjoy reading.

Here’s what Kregel Publications says about Refuge on Crescent Hill.

Moving home after a recent job loss was supposed to reassure Camden Bristow and give her time to decide what to do next. But when she arrives in Etherton, Ohio, she discovers that her grandmother, who she hasn’t talked to in years, has passed away and “home” is an empty mansion 150 years old. Not exactly the comfort Camden was looking for. What happened to the house she played in as a child, the bedtime stories that told of secret passageways and runaway slaves, and all those family memories?

When antiques start disappearing and footsteps are heard, some of those memories start to creep back and Camden wonders if her grandmother’s bedtime stories might actually be true. What really happened here . . . at Crescent Hill? How was her grandmother involved? Who still has access to the house? And for what purpose? As she works to uncover the past and present mysteries harbored in her home, Camden also uncovers secrets about her family that could change the town—and her life—forever. “It’s history, mystery, and treasure hunt wrapped up in one suspenseful adventure! You’ll want to keep the lights on while you read Dobson’s plot-driven story. She so skillfully sets the scene in this memory- haunting house that you’ll hear the creaks and footsteps. And whether lost or redeemed, her believable characters ring true with their genuine faults, all-too-human mistakes, and realistic ‘skeletons in the closet.'”–Fiction Editor, Christian Book Distributors
