The Queensford Family
Author: Shelley M. Hollenbeck
Publisher: Dorrance Publishing Co.
Seven invited tourists and their tour-guide driver are storm-isolated at Queensford Castle, Cock Robin Island, California. In the grand tradition of Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None," all seven die, one by one. Who killed them - their Native American driver? Their host? The butler? The answer is much more complicated than Christie's, involving the characters' past lives and a centuries-old prophecy heralding divine retribution
I thought that this book seemed fairly interesting from the summary. Seven tourists travel to a castle on an island, get stranded there, and all die. I was excited to see how it would all play out and also to find out "whodunit".
The story was very interesting as you got to know the characters more and you find out some secret history regarding the Queensford family. The whole time you are reading the novel you're trying to figure out who's going to be the next victim, how they are going to die, and who is behind all of the killings. I didn't want to stop reading because I so badly wanted to find out who the murderer was, but sadly I was not very satisfied with the ending. I felt that it could have been better. But all-in-all it was a pretty good book and I did enjoy it.
