This is the perfect novel to curl up and read with a glass of mulled wine and a cat on your lap during those dark winter months when we can only imagine the scent of fresh flowers. And if you wonder what on earth I'm talking about, you'll have to read the book!
The characters are beautifully drawn and the writing and editing superb. The background of Freya Gibson is eventually revealed but the revelations, I think, further enhance her strong character. I’d love to meet Patrick- that successful author and the man in Freya’s life! The supporting characters are also well rounded, especially Nathan the man who can get Freya anything decoratively speaking and the tiny Mary Draper who is like a little whirlwind.
The supernatural aspects of the house work immediately: the ‘house’ now winding a positive spell of its own! (hopefully all previous negatives having been set in 'balance').
To be recommended for those who love a good mystery; a satisfying romance; and those who enjoy a little dash of the supernatural added in for good measure.
Nicola Slade is a talented author who has created characters so real, I felt I knew them, and the Hampshire countryside and village setting is beautifully described.
The mix of present day and history blend well and are essential to the reading, as are the fantastical hares and health-giving water in the well. There is much to enjoy in this romance, historical and mystery novel.
As an inhabitant of the market town that was inspiration for Ramalley, it was an added interest to identify some local landmarks - but this isn't a carbon copy of Romsey, and you'd never be able to find Ladywell by following the directions in the book.
Some of the past is violent, and much of the present is romantic, but the two are skilfully blended into a very satisfying whole.
