Book Review: Refuge on Crescent Hill

“The Bristow Mansion has guarded its secrets for generations. Until now . . .”

This statement from the cover of Refuge on Crescent Hill defines the novel perfectly! As a minor character attempts to solve an old family mystery, others stumble upon a mystery of their own. Perhaps deep secrets from the past can save Camden Bristow’s future.

As the story opens, Camden is without a job or a home. In desperation, she returns to the only home she’s ever known—her grandmother’s house, Bristow Mansion. Sadly, she just misses her grandmother’s memorial service by only a few days. Yet she quickly learns that her grandmother, in spite of Camden’s neglect, has left everything to her.

The town wants the property, though, and is determined to get it through unethical means. With new acquaintance Alex Yates’s help, Camden must find a way to save her childhood home and carry on her grandmother’s legacy.

Refuge on Crescent Hill by Melanie Dobson is a contemporary novel with an historical mystery. The main characters don’t even realize they are solving a mystery; they are just trying to solve a problem. Yet they uncover secrets as they go and stumble upon something bigger than they ever expected. I loved the way this story unfolded! I’m happy to recommend this book, and thank Kregel Publications for sending a complimentary copy for my review.

Special Note from Kregel Publications: Refuge on Crescent Hill will be available on Amazon Kindle FREE for one week starting October 31! (And if you don't own your own Kindle, Amazon will let you download a free reader, so you can enjoy Kindle books on your PC.)
