Holiday-Themed Cozy Mystery | 12 Days at Bleakly Manor by Michelle Griep


When Clara Chapman receives an intriguing invitation to spend Christmas at an English manor home, she is hesitant yet compelled to attend—for if she remains the duration of the twelve-day celebration, she is promised a sum of one thousand pounds. That’s enough money to bring her brother back from America and reinstate their stolen family fortune. But is she walking into danger? It appears so, especially when she comes face to face with one of the other guests—her former fiancĂ©, Benjamin Lane. 

Imprisoned unjustly, Ben wants revenge on whoever stole his honor. When he’s given the chance to gain his freedom, he jumps at it—and is faced with the anger of the woman he stood up at the altar.

Brought together under mysterious circumstances for the Twelve Days of Christmas, Clara and Ben discover that what they've been striving for isn't what ultimately matters. What matters most is what Christmas is all about . . . love.


As a number of strangers receive invitations to spend the Twelve Days of Christmas at Bleakly Manor by an unknown host, Michelle Griep delivers a holiday-themed story full of cozy mystery, drama, and even romance. In some ways, 12 Days at Bleakly Manor reminded me of both Clue and And Then There Were None, and I so enjoyed guessing at what would happen next. It’s a well-plotted story with a distinctly classic feel, and any reader in need of a quick and enjoyable Christmas read will not be disappointed with this one. I recommend it.


I received a complimentary copy of 12 Days at Bleakly Manor from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. All the opinions I have expressed are my own.
