My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Secret of Pembroke Park by Julie Klassen

I liked the mystery in this story and the characters grew as they walked their journey.  Two sisters, one past her coming out parties and one just getting ready to enjoy all the attention and hope for a gentleman to prepose.  BUT..
Louisa has some growing up to do as we will soon see.
Abigail is the sensible older daughter who works with her parents to make their lives easier.  Misfortune falls on the family and they must find another place to live.
Surprised when they receive a letter from a solicitor stating they are invited to visit Pembroke Park that has been vacant for some years and possibly lease at a reduced rate. The Foster's soon see it would help them to stay in this house and oversee refurbishing and signed a lease for a year.   They soon after moving in find many in the area think there is treasure to be found in the home and Abigail also thinks she will look for a secret room with a treasure -they could use this for a new beginning.
Come read the story that Julie has woven about the old house..secrets and all. Distant family found and the mystery surrounding family members that lived in the home before.
As old foes and new friends come to Pembroke Park, secrets come to light, Will Abigail find the treasure and the Love she seeks??
If you like old homes and genteel people you will enjoy this story as I did.
