I have read most of Julie Klassen’s books over the last few years, and I have to say that this might be my favorite one yet. First, it’s a beautiful cover and begs to be read. Secondly, the book is nice and thick, 451 delightful pages! Most importantly, The Secret of Pembrooke Park is a great story you will not regret spending your time reading. I loved it!
In The Secret of Pembrooke Park, Abigail Foster’s family is facing financial ruin and has accepted an offer of housing from distant relatives at Pembrooke Park. Abigail and her father find the old home just as the last family left it….eighteen years ago. The house is draped in mystery and frankly, a little creepy. Abigail works to put the house in order and begins to unravel the secrets of Pembrooke Park. She also meets a very attractive local curate, William. He and his family have some part to play in the house and the secrets it holds. Abigail must decide who to trust and with whom to exercise caution.
There are several things about this book that made me love it. I love all things Regency Era, and the fact that this title is a love story plus a mystery makes it all the more wonderful. I never found myself skimming pages, I enjoyed every word. Even in the middle. The Secret of Pembrooke Park isn’t long for the sake of being long. Thank you Julie Klassen for another terrific read!
I was given a complimentary copy of this book from its publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and I have not been compensated.
