Is it Moonlight or is it Murder?

Ned McNeil is haunted by a nightmare that wakes her in the middle of the night, leaving her gasping for breath. A dog—or is it a wolf?—howling in her yard under the brilliant autumn moon sends chills down her spine. Is the moonlight and the fact that she is alone in Granger Mansion causing her imagination to work overtime? Hidden by a dense fog, an unknown driver pursues Ned to the edge of a cliff, an innocent-appearing luncheon ends in violence, a neighbor drops dead for no apparent reason, and a hidden shooter waylays her in a deserted cemetery. Surely, these are not coincidences. Every old house has a history and Ned thought she knew everything about Granger Mansion, but the house holds some deep secrets of its own. Those secrets very nearly cost Ned McNeil her life.

By the Fright of the Silvery Moon is a page turner; a cozy mystery with an extra shiver that just may keep you up at...

By The Fright of the Silvery Moon A Ned McNeil Mystery by Blanche Day Manos is a wonderful hair-raising, toe-curling, suspenseful, fun mystery you won't want to miss.

Ned has inherited her Uncle Javin's family home, Granger Mansion, and is trying to fulfill his request that she find out and write the history of the house. Her research unearths a mystery that just may be putting her in danger and leads to murder. Can she figure out the mystery of the house, the old church and the legend that surrounds both without being hurt or anyone else for that matter?

This is a great mixture of suspense, mystery, faith, friends and tension. I love how Blanche Manos combines just enough scary situations to keep you on the edge of your seat yet not terrifying to the point of you not wanting to read more.

This is the second book in the series and this second book picks up where the first one left off. It shows how Ned is settling in and finds her niche in EdnaLee. I enjoy the camaraderie of Ned and her friends Pat and Jackie, as well as her love interest in Cade. Whenever Ned gets into trouble she can count on them to jump right in and help her.

This book grabs you from the very first paragraph with Ned's nightmare and keeps you riding along through all the adventure until the end. It has twists that you don't see coming and a puzzle within a puzzle. When I got to the end I was already looking forward to the next book to see what Ned gets into.

I have to say Ned is braver than I would be. One example of this is when she hears a noise in her basement and decides to get a flashlight and go check it out. All I could think is don't go down there you know how that always ends in scary movies, nothing good ever happens.

I loved this book and I don't want to give any of it away so lets just say if you a good mystery  with strong characters, good friends, good puzzles to figure out, and a few hair-raising situations you need to read this book.

Blanche Day Manos has a way with words that pulls you into the story and takes you on a ride right along with the characters in the book. I couldn't put it down. I can not wait to read the next book in the series.

In "By the Fright of the Silvery Moon," Blanche Day Manos has done a masterful job of drawing me into the mystery, maintaining the suspense throughout, and tying up the ends in a satisfying finale - yet managing to leave room for a possible sequel. She limned characters with warmth, and her imagery brought the scenes to life with similes "Clouds flitted across the moon restless spirits." or "My idea was those leaves swirling around the maple tree in the yard. They were going in a dizzying circle one second and the next the wind had blown them in a dozen different directions." I heartily recommend reading "By the Fright of the Silvery Moon"!
