Book Review: The House at the End of the Moor by Michelle Griep

About the Book:

What Can a London Opera Star and an Escaped Dartmoor Prisoner Have in Common?

Opera star Maggie Lee escapes her opulent lifestyle when threatened by a powerful politician who aims to ruin her life. She runs off to the wilds of the moors to live in anonymity. All that changes the day she discovers a half-dead man near her house. Escaped convict Oliver Ward is on the run to prove his innocence, until he gets hurt and is taken in by Maggie. He discovers some jewels in her possession—the very same jewels that got him convicted. Together they hatch a plan to return the jewels, clearing Oliver’s name and hopefully maintaining Maggie’s anonymity.

My Thoughts:

In her newest release, The House at the End of the Moor, author Michelle Griep brings readers a multi-layered story of danger, mystery, and romance. As always, Griep’s writing features lyrical prose to paint a vivid setting before sweeping the reader into all the romance, drama, and mystery of the story. The novel held my attention from the start and the mystery of the stolen jewels elevated my interest. While certain characters give the novel a bit of a dark, creepy feel, it’s not a heavy book. I was pleased with the character development of Maggie and Oliver. The novel’s exploration of themes about justice, forgiveness, and mending relationships offers spiritual encouragement to the individual reader, but also provides plenty of discussion topics for book clubs.

The House at the End of the Moor by Michelle Griep is a stand-alone novel and will likely appeal to fans of inspirational historical romance.
