What was the driving force behind uber rich, middle-aged Forrest's purchase of Old Mrs. Kimble's mansion in the beautiful Appalachians, the mansion he loved dreaming of as a kid? Could it be revenge? Nostalgia? A project? Discovery? Forrest, his attorney, Olivia, and interior designer have a huge project on their hands. But Forrest has the resources.

As a kid, Forrest lived next to his dream mansion and then pursued it as an adult. He had been shockingly jilted by his fiance as a young college gr

Old Mrs. Kimbles mansion

I was given an ARC in return for my honest review

I thought that this was a thoughtful book about the main character, Forrest, he was scorned as a young man. He only wanted to live alone, build money and be a hermit. Of course with this being a book that isn’t going to be all that there is. He has an attorney, Olivia, she wants more the Forrest is willing to give. The book that follows is good. I enjoyed it. I would recommend to readers that enjoy mysteries with a little

Old Mrs. Kinble's Mansion is a story about a man who left his home but never came back for a very long time. Taking place in Va. The description of the country is fabulous. The plot of this story, I kindly had to struggle through it but did finish. It's not at all what I thought it would be as in the characters and the writing. I didn't feel as I was part of this story and when that happens it's wonderful. It's a good read I'm sure for others it just wasn't for me. I will try to read another boo ...more

I enjoyed this entertaining story. The characters are flawed but believable. I didn't find much to the mystery part. It took too long to be introduced as part of the story. I received this book for free and I am voluntarily leaving my review. ...more

Suspense and intrigue abound in this story. Lots of twists and turns with plenty of drama. Interesting and entertaining characters. Grabs you from the first page. Good read.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
