    A very well crafted mystery

    The Secret Staircase is the perfect story to read while sitting in a comfortable chair in front of a roaring fire, or perhaps on the beach. I settled back in my recliner and was quickly swept away in a well crafted tale of intrigue with just the right combination of suspenseful plot, quirky characters, sharp dialogue and a setting that is both comforting and threatening. In other words, a terrific cozy.

    Melanie Jackson knows her craft and it certainly shows in this, the first of the Wendover House Mystery series. Count me in as a customer for her next installment.

    I loved the atmosphere in this book. It was a gothic thriller like they used to write in the old days. At the same time it had many cozy mystery elements. And each book in the series ends on a cliff hanger. I loved the book and hope there will be lots more in the series.
