Review: 12 Days at Bleakly Manor by Michelle Griep

12 Days at Bleakly Manor by is a Christmas retelling of the Dickens classic Bleakly Manor. I started this story with zero expectations but quickly fell in love with the writing style of , the mystery surrounding the manor and its guests, and the jilted romance between Ben and Clara. It reminds me a little of Agatha Christie’s And […]
