THE HOUSE AT THE END OF THE MOOR by Michelle Griep, Reviewed by Winnie Thomas
I can always count on a grand adventure when I pick up a book by Michelle Griep and The House at the End of the Moor was no exception.
With a rich historical setting and multi-layered, colorful characters, this book drew me in and kept me captivated to the last page. I was cheering for some of the characters and booing at some, but they were all masterfully created. Griep’s careful research shines through and adds authenticity and interest to the story. Maggie and Oliver are both likeable and engaging, and I enjoyed seeing their relationship grow and develop as they got to know each other.
This book has a little bit of everything—action, suspense, danger, intrigue, and villainy, with some romance and inspiration thrown in for good measure. I recommend this book to those who enjoy well-written historical fiction. 4.5 stars

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.
