Book Review: House at the End of the Moor

About the Book:

What Can a London Opera Star and an Escaped Dartmoor Prisoner Have in Common?
 
Opera star Maggie Lee escapes her opulent lifestyle when threatened by a powerful politician who aims to ruin her life. She runs off to the wilds of the moors to live in anonymity. All that changes the day she discovers a half-dead man near her house. Escaped convict Oliver Ward is on the run to prove his innocence, until he gets hurt and is taken in by Maggie. He discovers some jewels in her possession—the very same jewels that got him convicted. Together they hatch a plan to return the jewels, clearing Oliver’s name and hopefully maintaining Maggie’s anonymity.

My Thoughts:

Something about Michelle Griep’s writing always draws me into the story. The House At The End Of The Moor was no exception.

There were many facets to the story and I liked the way they were woven together to form a layered tale. I found the variety of villains added interesting dynamics, however some of the aspects associated with the villains seemed difficult to swallow and still find the story believable.

All in all I found the adventure to be fast paced and interesting, the connection between the main characters authentic and the redemption sufficient.

I received a free, unedited digital copy of this novel in exchange for my honest opinion.
