The epic story of doing what most people just dream of, opening your home as a tourist attraction. Twenty one years ago Keith and Maggie Bell bought Crook Hall and Gardens as a private home and then decided, in what might be seen as a fit of madness, to open it to the general public. This is the story of buying a medieval Manor House situated in the middle of Durham City, and then the extraordinary experience of opening your home to the public. Keith describes how the Hall and Gardens were developed into one of the top tourist attractions in the North of England. This is the story of the practical and emotional struggles through those years and inspiring, engaging and sometimes downright hilarious interactions with each other, the people who came to work for them, and the general public. When they bought the property Keith ran a management consultancy and his wife, Maggie, worked in Child Psychiatry. They had no master plan to build a business from their new home. This story is the record of what happened once they decided to open their front gates to the public. With absolutely no experience of the gardening nor the hospitality sector and little exposure to the difficulties of owning a listed building, this was an undertaking fraught with hazard. Although they had limited time and an even smaller budget they could bring to the project an enormous amount of enthusiasm and energy. The book is divided into various different parts of the project: the period before opening the Hall; the tales of the ghost in the house; the wedding parties; the various events they ran; the different visitors they welcomed, the team they built up to run the house and their future aspirations for this wonderful success story.

Maeve Conlon's life is coming apart at the seams. Her bakery is barely making ends meet, and one of her daughters spends as much time grounded as the other does studying. Her ex-husband has a new wife, a new baby, and a look of pity for Maeve that's absolutely infuriating. Her father insists he's still independent, but he's slowly and obviously succumbing to Alzheimer's. And now, her cousin Sean Donovan has been found dead, sitting in his car in a public park in quiet Farringville, New York, shot through the head. There was never much love lost between Maeve and Sean and she's not exactly devastated by his death, but suddenly the police are poking around asking the family questions. It's just one more hassle Maeve doesn't have time for, until she realizes that her father, whose memory and judgment are unreliable at best, is a suspect in the murder. Maeve is determined to clear his name, but is she prepared to cope with the dark memories and long-hidden secrets that doing so might dredge up? Maggie Barbieri will mesmerize readers with Once Upon a Lie, a gripping novel about family, justice, and the choices we make that define who we are.
