I have read several of her books and enjoyed them all. this started a little slowly until the scene "was set" and then it moved quickly. I read it in under 2 evenings. I did miss the parallel stories that usually appear in her books.

This book is quite haunting. I found it difficult to follow the different characters, and the map at the beginning was grossly incomplete. However, the characters were interesting and the plot very engaging. A good read, but quite disturbing.

A dark, gothic suspense mystery that was a quick read. The plot's been done before, but this one has a different twist.

An atmospheric and macabre page-turner of a Gothic read that I couldn't put down (even though I really wanted to at times due to some pretty gory passages). The author's descriptive writing made the setting feel very real and I loved the complex and interesting main characters. Another great Halloween read!

I was drawn in from nearly the first page and had a hard time putting it down. The vivid descriptions and stylistic sentence fragments kept me quite entertained. ;) The story was disturbing and more macabre than my usual taste but I had to know how it ended, and I found myself engrossed in the quirky characters of Connie, Harry, Davey, and Gifford. I am curious to check out the author's other books for sure!
