Publisher's Summary

Bridgestead is a peaceful spot: a babbling brook, rolling hills, and a working mill at its heart. Pretty and remote, nothing exceptional happens...until the day that Master of the Mill Joshua Braithwaite goes missing under dramatic circumstances, never to be heard of again. Now Joshua's daughter is getting married and wants to make one last attempt at finding her father. Has he run off with his mistress? Or was he murdered for his mounting coffers?
Kate Shackleton has always loved solving puzzles. So who better to get to the bottom of Joshua's mysterious disappearance? But as Kate taps into the lives of the Bridgestead dwellers, she opens cracks that some would kill to keep closed.

Fluff & Nonsense

This book "Disney-izes" post WWI Britain in a way that I never dreamt possible for the historic fiction/mystery genre. The daffy-est "Polly-Anna" sleuth I have met yet. I just hated it.

This book dragged.

The premise was good. The setting was good. The info about satanic mills was educational. The characters were so so. And oh! I thought the story would never end! I skipped from chapter 7 to 4 from the end, and still it seemed too long. The reader was ok, though. I shan't be reading/listening to any more by this author. Sorry to be so negative!
