Mitchell Manor by S. R. Leinbeck Review#MitchellManor #NetGalley


Mitchell Manor is a place that holds a lot of secrets.

The Mitchells were one of the most prominent families in the area. In 1843, Theodore Mitchell’s family and the household staff were found murdered. When Theodore disappeared, rumors began accusing him of the crime. What would cause a normally well-mannered and well-liked individual to completely snap? Over one hundred years would pass before the true answer to that question is discovered.

Elle Lewis is a novel writer looking for inspiration for her next book. She rented Mitchell Manor in hopes of removing herself from the distractions of the city. As soon as she arrives at the manor, strange events start to happen. Believing it’s her imagination, Elle dismisses many of the occurrences. When things start to escalate, Elle can’t ignore the manor anymore. She realizes it is her responsibility to find out what really happened the night of the murders.

This book has all the ingredients for a classic ghost story: a haunted house, evil spirits, time travel, and small-town rumors. Along with a little romance and humor, this book gives the reader a little bit of everything.

My Thoughts

In 1843 a family is murdered. The man who they said had killed his family and servants disappeared, never to be heard from again.

in 2022, Elle Lewis, a writer, rents Mitchell Manor to have a place to finish her next book. Mitchell Manor is in a small town so it is a quiet place for her to accomplish this task.

Upon arrival, there are servants there of which she knew nothing about. A butler and a cook, she thinks that this is pretty cool. As she settles into her new home, strange things start to happen. The servants can tell what she wants even before she does.

The back story to the haunting of this house is that in 1843, Theodore Mitchell murdered his family and servants, or did he? He disappeared and was never found. Elle is intrigued by the story and starts researching the family. She questions people in town and finds that she feels responsible to find out what happened to the family.

What she finds has disturbing consequences. 

Mitchell Manor is a short read, only 86 pages but I felt that it was written surprisingly well. A story that had me turning the pages in one sitting. I love a good ghost story and this one did not disappoint. Kind of a sad story also. The fate of one family rested in one person's hands and that person was not a good person.

I give this book a 5-star rating.

I received a copy of the book for review purposes only.
