Brentwood, California (EastBayDaily) — Full of colorful characters that are each more suspicious than the last, Bradbury gives readers plenty of opportunities to try and solve the mystery before the characters do.
From the dominating and cruel main character, Lady Baldwin, to the mild-mannered but secretly devious house servants she employs, Bradbury draws readers in to the lives of the English high society elite. With the main events set in a beautiful English country home filled with aristocratic guests, Stonebridge Manor takes a twist that even lovers of mystery will never see coming.
From cover to cover, this novel is filled with captivating intrigue, fleshed out characters with motives galore, and peppered with charming dialogue that eloquently displays the wry British humor of its author. Stonebridge Manor, the sprawling country estate, is described in lush detail and given a place in the story as well, its own charm and character illuminated in the long, dark hallways and rich mahogany floors. Readers will be reluctant to return to their own worlds once they’ve taken this imaginative weekend holiday with the characters.
Readers will adore the twists and turns throughout the novel, from the first daring sentence to the shocking and delightful conclusion. No doubt they will be turning pages furiously to figure out “whodunit”, and when they’ve reached the satisfying end, will be anxiously awaiting the next captivating novel, Prospects, from the funny and promising new author.
