Firstly I must say I admire Judy Finnigan for attempting to write a novel. I'm sure it is much harder than it sounds. However, I never really got into this book. I found the language stilted at times. The bad language in it didn't seem appropriate to the characters and the conversations never really flowed. I noticed several mistakes too. The storyline was very contrived, but it is a story so I suppose that can be overlooked. It just seemed to be a bit too convenient the way things fell into place. I liked the idea of the ghost and I liked the descriptions of Cornwall. There were one or two outstanding passages but unfortunately the rest of the prose let it down in my opinion. I found the characters rather bland or in the case of Chris, very unsympathetic. Would a psychiatrist really use the words he used ? It made me annoyed with Cathy because she was so needy and couldn't live without him. Also for some reason, I found it quite irritating that they kept eating fish and chips or went to the beach cafe all the time.
Not a bad holiday read. A nice idea for a story but the execution just didn't do it for me.
