A mildly interesting plot, but the story suffers because a 21st-century woman is the protagonist of a 1930s- or 1940s-style ghost story set in Cornwall, with all the fragility and deference to her husband that one sees in books and movies of that period. Daphne du Maurier's books seem to be the author's model, and, indeed, the main character is said to have been a fan. Unfortunately, Du Maurier's characters are anachronisms nowadays, so nothing rings true in this book.
Any additional comments?
I was enjoyably haunted with Eloise. I envisioned UK television personality Judy Finnegan as Cathy and her husband Richard, as Chris! The locale and references to Du Maurier evoked memories of another unseen title character, Rebecca.
