Review ~ Shadows of Swanford Abbey by Julie Klassen + Giveaway


About the Book

In pursuit of an author who could help get her brother published, Rebecca Lane stays at Swanford Abbey, a grand hotel rumored to be haunted. It is there she encounters Sir Frederick--the man who broke her heart. When a mysterious death occurs, Rebecca is one of the suspects, and Frederick is torn between his feelings for her and his search for the truth.

My Review 4 STARS

Julie Klassen has written an intriguing story laced with much mystery. In classic Klassen fashion, the characters are well-developed, dialogue is engaging, and the plot is interesting enough to satisfy the most discriminating reader. Although at a hefty 403 pages, I did think it was a bit wordy which slowed it down for me.

Fans of historical fiction will enjoy this latest offering by a most beloved author in the Christian fiction genre.

I was provided a copy by the publisher. No review was required. No compensation received.


I know many of my friends have read this book and others by Julie. Have you read any of her books? If so, do you have a favorite? I think mine would be a toss up between The Silent Governess and The Girl in the Gatehouse, both which are excellent historical romances!!! 

Let's chat in the comments!!!

  1. 403 pages does sound rather a lot!

  2. Julie Klassen is one of my MUST read authors!

    I follow your blog.

    1. There are so many good books out little time to read them all. :-)

  3. I've read several of Julie's early books, but it's been several years and quite a few releases since I read one. Not that I wouldn't enjoy them, just to many books to little time!

    I follow via GFC


    1. I wholeheartedly agree, Patty! It had been a while since I read one of her books.
