A Mansion for Murder

We rated this book:


Kate is drawn to Yorkshire by a letter sent to her by a stranger named Ronnie that requests her visit a rumored cursed mansion. She doesn’t believe in curses but what she finds when she arrives threatens to change her mind: Ronnie’s body. The family, in fear of the curse, declares their intentions to leave, only for their plans to be derailed following a child’s disappearance. Ronnie’s Uncle Nick shares a startling revelation about the past that may give Kate the key she needs to solve Ronnie’s murder, find the missing child, and uncover how the mystery of old bones is connected.

The writing is immediately delightful, setting the historical setting while also establishing the wonderful tone with words such as squidging and squelching, and later using words such as grandeur. This complicated mystery draws you into the story right from the beginning with the mysterious letter that serves as the catalyst for Kate to arrive at the mansion and where she finds the drowned body of the sender. The plot primarily revolves around the mansion, creating the perfect backdrop for A Mansion for Murder to come to life with a potential curse, pulling in the intriguing characters of Ronnie’s family and setting the stage for a shocking disappearance.
