Camden has lost her freelance jobs and her savings in New York City and has decided to visit her grandmother in Ohio.

When she arrives in Camden, her grandmother has recently passed away and given her the old family home.  The home is going to take more money to improve than Camden has, which is nothing.

Camden tries to sell the house and some buyers surface, but their intentions for the house are not necessarily  what she wants.  And the more time Camden stays, the more she learns about the town’s past, her past and those she meets, which helps to solve mysteries that surface.

About the Author-  Melanie Dobson lives with her family in Oregon.  She has worked in journalism and publicity for many years.  One of the places she worked was at Focus on the Family.  She has also written The Black Cloister and Together for Good.

My thoughts-

I enjoy a good mystery especially when Christianity, history, and a good plot are involved the novel becomes even better.

When I received this book in the mail, I just had to open the package and start reading right away.  I reluctantly had to put it down as I needed to fix our lunch.  It wasn’t until after the kids went to bed that I was able to read the book.  Needless to say it was a very late night.  :)

Melanie Dobson has woven a story I think will be a classic.  There were so many exciting events:  people I thought were innocent were not and vice versa, Camden gained family members she didn’t know she had; and how her grandmother protected women who were in abusive relationships.

I highly recommend Refuge on Crescent Hill.  It has something for everyone: mystery, American history, and romance.  I will be sharing this title with my local librarians.
