What happens when you combine Bleak House by Charles Dickens, And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie, Victorian Christmas traditions, and romance? You get 12 Days at Bleakly Manor by Michelle Griep.
Seven guests are invited to Bleakly Manor. Each one is promised something if they stay for twelve days. I found the plot intriguing and the seven guests each had a quirky personality, which I loved. This is a short read and I really would have liked it to have been longer and gotten to know the characters better and seen them interact a bit more with each other. The ending also wraps up very quickly and neatly without much explanation.
December is a busy month and sometimes its hard to delve into a big book so this would be a great read for those times when you want to read something with a Christmas theme that is short and simple and yet a fun read.
