Keeps your interest throughout. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I'm sorry it ended, I'll have to read it again! Great plot, characters, and atmosphere. Love it!!

Hallie James, a divorced thirtysomething, receives a letter from a woman named Madlyn Crane who claims to be her mother. Hallie had been told her mother died in a fire when she was six. I liked this engaging modern gothic tale with a strong female protagonist and well-done suspense.

Thoroughly enjoyable, in a contemporary Gothic ghost-story kind of way. Good story, albeit with some (big) holes in logic and character development. Writing's a little clunky, but, still, a tale you want learn the ending too.

This is a good book from the get-go. I read it in an afternoon. Nice chilly ghosty parts and a very likeable main character. Just waiting for your next book, Wendy!
