Book Summary from the publisher:
This homecoming wasn’t what she expected . . .

Jobless, homeless, and broke, Camden Bristow decides to visit the grandmother she hasn’t seen in years. But when Camden arrives in Etherton, Ohio, she discovers that her grandmother has passed away, leaving her the 150-year-old mansion on Crescent Hill. The site of her happiest summers as a child, the run-down mansion is now her only refuge.

When Camden finds evidence that she may not be the mansion’s only occupant, memories of Grandma Rosalie’s bedtime stories about secret passageways and runaway slaves fuel her imagination. What really happened at Crescent Hill?

Who can she turn to for answers in this town full of strangers? And what motivates the handsome local Alex
Yates to offer his help? As she works to uncover the past and present mysteries harbored in her home, Camden uncovers deep family secrets within the mansion’s walls that could change her life—and the entire town—forever.

My Review:

I really enjoyed this book!  Refuge on Crescent Hill had all the aspects I love to read ~ a great story line, intriguing plot, history, mystery, suspense and a bit of romance.  Ms. Dobson did a fantastic job writing this novel and I had a wonderful afternoon relaxing, sipping hot tea and immersing myself in this delightful book!

I definitely recommend reading this!
