Special thanks to author Therese J. Roberts for giving me a signed copy of her book!
In Old Manor Mystery, readers quickly learn that two murders have already occurred at the Old Anderson Manor before protagonist, Elizabeth Henley, begins her work. At the very beginning of this novel, I was captivated. It has been quite some time since I was given the chance to read a murder mystery. This book heavily reminds me of some of the classic Nancy Drew tales in the sense that the mystery actually draws the reader in. Soon, readers find that a third death is feared while a desperate search begins to find the treasure hidden within the estate. Family secrets begin to complicate the matter as well as add in more and more suspects with each turn of the page. I was drawn to the suspects. I found myself captivated trying to figure out who committed the crime. Will Elizabeth find the killer or will the killer find her first?
This lighthearted mystery by Catholic author Therese J Roberts featured the perfect mystery story for me. Her use of diction, imagery, and rhetoric kept me interested and connected with the story. The novel is also wholesome and perfect for young teens or adults. Coming in at 270 pages, I found that this was an easy yet entertaining read for me. Not too long, but not too short either. Therese also offers to sign all customer's books free of charge! Using outside sources only for printing, the owner of Handmade Catholic Shop writes, edits, proofreads, and designs her own books.
