This is the second Lulu Taylor book I read and it was as enjoyable as Winter Folly. Told again over two story lines and the mystery of what happened to Cressida Fellbridge. In present day Emily inherits December House from a woman she did not know Catherine Few. Emily still reeling from the trauma in her own life becomes embroiled in unravelling the mystery of her Aunt. I really enjoyed this novel. it entirely held my interest and moved at a fast pace.

By JM TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 14 Dec. 2014
Format: Paperback
This was an enjoyable read though I did guess the twist halfway through the book.
It's a dual time frame novel featuring Emily in the present day and Cressida in the 1960s. Emily is married to Will and seemingly has the perfect life, big house, two beautiful children, lots of money. But suddenly her world comes crashing down around her and life will never be the same. As she faces financial ruin and a huge betrayal, a mysterious beneficiary leaves her a remote house that is her salvation.
Cressida is a naive young woman in the 1960s who dreams of something better than marriage to a suitable husband approved by her father, she wants to make a difference. Taking a teaching job she realises this is going to be much more difficult than she anticipated, at the same time her controlling father has arranged for her to have her portrait painted. What he hadn't planned on was for Cressida to fall in love with the artist, Ralph, particularly as he is already married. But as Ralph and Cressie's love develops, so does the strange and frightening behaviour of Ralph's wife Catherine.
The two threads are linked of course and it all comes together at the end. It's an easy read, and I enjoyed it but not as much as the author's previous novel The Winter Folly. I did wonder at the relevance to the story of Emily's brother Tom's decline, it seemed slightly pointless, and Cressida soon lost interest in teaching so I wasn't really sure why these issues were included, maybe for padding of the plot which was possibly a little bit thin. But not a bad book by any means, I will certainly read more by Lulu Taylor.

What a great read, I couldn't put this down. I loved the way the chapters flitted between the two protagonists but it made me want to flick through each one keen to get back to what the other was up to. I did spot the twists early on, but it didn't spoil my enjoyment and I think probably you are supposed to guess a few things.
I didn't warm to the male characters as much as the women in this book and didn't feel that Emily's love story was as exciting as Cressida's but I enjoyed it nonetheless and thought it was exceptionally well written and a dream to read.

This is the second book of Lulu Taylors I have read recently and it's even better than the first. I couldn't put it down and it kept me enthralled to the final pages. I like dual time frame books of which this is one and the way the two stories are woven together is very clever. Intriguing book and I shall read more of Lulu Taylor's books very soon.

Was disappointed with this book, from a promising start it lost credibility and the ending was rushed and implausible. The plot got overcomplicated and some of the characters seemed to belong in the gothic novel genre not the swinging sixties! Not sure if I will bother with anymore of her books

First time I have read anything by Lulu Taylor, it won't be the last - It is a book that will keep you wondering where it is going. I don't do spoilers suffice to say I recommend it.
It had me intrigued as to what the final outcome would be -

Entertaining dual narrative set in the 1960s and present.One story about a naive society girl falling for the man who paints her and the modern story of a betrayed wife coping alone.There is a connection between the two.Book padded out with dull parts--Cressie being a temporary teaching assistant.Also i guessed the big" surprise" early on.So a bit disapointed.The character TOM was horrible and should have been left out of the book
Not as mysterious or gripping as WINTER FOLLY her last book.Still an easy romance."
