Review: Skeletons of Birkbury by Diana J. Febry


When I first started to read Skeletons of Birkbury by Diana J. Febry, I felt it moved very slowly and I was boggled down with a lot of details. That being said, it is very well written and successfully takes you into the world this author has created.  

The characters are the best part of this book!  I liked the realism of the characters.  They had faults, they had positive and negative traits. They are so believable and with the vivid detail the author gives, it feels like you have known them forever.  


This is a very British mystery and you won't find a charted and nicely laid out story line that will allow you to figure out the ending; the twists and turns the author creates leaves you guessing until the very end, which is always a plus in this reader's eyes.  After all, where is the fun of a mystery if you can figure out the ending in a couple of chapters?  If you like Mysteries, this book is for you.  I give it 4
½ round to 5 for websites. 
Book Synopsis
Twenty years ago no connection was made between the disappearance of a girl from Cheltenham and a fatal car accident in the small village of Birkbury. But that changes when the body is found buried in Birkbury and there are two further car accidents and a local girl goes missing.

Diana J. Febry

This was my first book and I learnt a great deal about the art of writing through the many re writes of the original concept. As a first time author I was proud of the finished article.

I wrote the book in early 2011 but it was mid 2012 until it was re worked into a publishable form. I would like the thank the staff at Wingsepress who saw some worth in my ramblings and helped me turn my dream into a reality.

I hope my readers will enjoy the story and experience the flavour of a close knit rural community.
