    Kindle The Secret Rooms ePUB ä The Secret PDF/EPUB ² ä amateur sleuth.co ä secret free, rooms download, The Secret free, The Secret Rooms PDF/EPUBThe author drags you along for over 600 pages promising revelations secrets revealed mind boggling suspense What you get is a dry history full of a largely unsympathetic main character his aggravating and shrilly selfish mother and the rest of his detestable family One of the main secrets is never actually even explained but constantly brought up throughout the book Excellent reading fodder if you are trapped on a plane with nothing else to do for about eight hours

    Kindle The Secret Rooms ePUB ä The Secret PDF/EPUB ² ä amateur sleuth.co ä secret free, rooms download, The Secret free, The Secret Rooms PDF/EPUBI am not giving this book any stars because as much as I tried to get into this book each page was a chore to read Labeled a gothic mystery it should have been labeled a informational documentary I read the first 45 percent or a little of this book I did find the history good author Catherine Bailey really did her research the story was interesting me being a history buff However it read so boring as just informational The pictures were nice that were in the book I only wish I had enough muster to read the entire book I however could not bring myself to that much boredom I do see on the review thread of this book that it has

    Kindle The Secret Rooms ePUB ä The Secret PDF/EPUB ² ä amateur sleuth.co ä secret free, rooms download, The Secret free, The Secret Rooms PDF/EPUBAn absolutely corking tale better by far than most novels I’ve read recently I don’t think I’ve ever read a non fic book with so many cliff hangers My one and only bug bear and it is but a small gripe is with the chapters on the Great War where there is to my mind a lot of superfluous detail about the war Obviously some historical background is necessary to put the events of John’s life into context I don’t think we needed uite so much as we got I can’t help but feel that Catherine Bailey’s original intention to write a book about the Belvoir Volunteers the ‘mysterious army of ploughmen horsemen and field workers’ an entire generation lost to the war meant she found herself with a lot of surplus to reuirements research on her hands that was such good stuff she was determined to put it in anyway It’s interesting stuff in its own right but it’s not all pertinent to John’s story and it does slow the otherwise terrific pace dreadfullyIt is my only complaint and it

    Kindle The Secret Rooms ePUB ä The Secret PDF/EPUB ² ä amateur sleuth.co ä secret free, rooms download, The Secret free, The Secret Rooms PDF/EPUBThis started out so well and with such promisea castle filled with intrigue a plotting duchess and a mysterious deathI was hooked from the first page What was the big mystery? I loved finding out as Catherine Bailey picked away at clues painstakingly researching this very well written book Then about halfway through I began to suspect that we'd never really learn the truth There were too many gaps in the letters too much of a cover up of events long past The little facts that were gleaned were by that time very disappointing What started out as an eager What happened what happened what happened?' turned into a disappointed Oh was that it?

    Kindle The Secret Rooms ePUB ä The Secret PDF/EPUB ² ä amateur sleuth.co ä secret free, rooms download, The Secret free, The Secret Rooms PDF/EPUBWhat the hell was this? No seriously what the hell? At first I was apprehensive about reading this but knowing my reading history I like to give every book a chance Unfortunately I wanted to personally rip out every page of this book and not recycle anything I did not have a clue what this book was about does it suppose to be mystery? Ohh creepy horrific thrilling right? Puh please this book is abominably bad not even worth the time or effort For the life of me I do not understand why books like this get critically praised maybe it is not my type of genre or whateve

Was there a link between the missing war letters and whatever it was the family had wanted to hide?Page 59Briefly I explained what I had discovered how after 6 July 1915 until December of that year there was a large gap in the family's correspondence and that the start of this void coincided with the date John's war diary had stoppedPage 99I focused on the three missing periods There was the gap in the summer of 1915 when John had been on the Western front and which had begun with the blank pages in his war
