Brentwood, California (EastBayDaily) — A Page-Turning Debut Novel
Bradbury offers readers a truly literary novel, fusing page-turning plot and compelling characters in a novel deeply interwoven with colorful thematic elements. Beneath the spellbinding surface plot lie the themes of conspiracy and manipulation, offset by wry humor and the juicy secrets of what lies behind high society’s closed doors.
With a captivating cast of characters centered around the antagonist, Lady Baldwin, who tries to buy the loyalty of her servants while treating them abominably, Stonebridge Manor is rich with entertainment and intrigue. Lady Baldwin gets her just desserts in a plot twist that will pleasantly surprise readers with its audacity and cunning, and keeps them trying to figure out the culprit until the last moment.
The location of the novel, the titular Stonebridge Manor, is a character unto itself. Readers will be drawn into its dark rooms and long hallways, wondering what—or who—is around the next corner. With lush descriptions of both the characters and the location, Bradbury has created a world in which readers will find themselves delightfully wishing that they could be a part of.
Bradbury keeps readers furiously turning pages from cover to cover. Inevitably, readers will be left anxious and excited for the sophomore release, Prospects, from this promising new author.
