I was sold on this book by the amazing cover. They say that you should never judge a book by it's cover but in this instance, I had the last laugh. I was amazed that this book sucked me in so quickly.
I don't usually take to period-horror tales but this was an exception. I instantly related to the main character, even though I found her to be quite annoying and 'needy'. Like another reviewer, I was thinking of Stepford Wives throughout the tale but only very loosely as this novel manages to create a twist all of it's own.
Beautifully written. This writer really captures the haunted house atmosphere.
Not a book to read alone at night!
I am going to find the time to read Still Lake soon!
