Refuge on Crescent Hill by Melanie Dobson

Refuge on Crescent Hill: A Novel, by Melanie Dobson

Moving home after a recent job loss was supposed to reassure Camden Bristow but what she finds is an empty mansion 150 years old. What happened to the house she played in as a child, the bedtime stories that told of secret passageways and runaway slaves, and all those family memories?

When antiques start disappearing and footsteps are heard, Camden wonders what really happened here . . . at Crescent Hill? Who still has access to the house? And for what purpose? As she works to uncover the past and present mysteries harbored in her home, Camden also uncovers secrets about her family that could change the town--and her life--forever.

This was the first book I have read by Melanie Dobson and my first review for Kregel Publishers. I have been pleasantly surprised by both. I always like receiving a book with the posting instructions. (I am honored to blog for many publishers and sometimes it gets confusing of when what is supposed to happen.)

I really enjoyed this book. I honestly had a hard time putting it down because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. There were good twists and turns that kept my interest. I appreciated the Christian undertones to the book and the events. If you're looking for a good Christian thriller, you will not be disappointed in Refuge on Crescent Hill.

Special Note: Refuge on Crescent Hill will be available on Amazon Kindle FREE for one week starting October 31! 

Kregel Publishers and Ms. Dobson provided me with a review copy in exchange for an honest review of the book on my blog. Thank you!
