...than suspenseful, creepy tale. When Morgan suddenly inherits Woodmere Manor from a father she didn't know existed, she is thrust into a mystery on her very first night! She is enchanted with a strange portrait of a woman and another of a solemn man who stare at each other from across a room. Morgan must decide if she is just spooked to be living in the mansion alone or if there is something more supernatural or sinister going on.
I would have liked more suspenseful, creepiness in this listen over the romance aspects that took up much of Morgan's time. She did such stupid things. First, she sees the man from the painting on her lawn and then goes and adopts...a cat?? Second, she immediately develops an attraction for the local priest. I mean like at first sight. Third, the priest offers to bless her home when she confides in him about her finds in the tower and she doesn't have him do it, like right now? The premise was a good one for this story but I would have liked less of the romance and angst that took up so much of Morgan's thoughts and more creepy, suspenseful atmosphere as well as more backstory on Morgan, her father, Noel, and Owen.
I enjoyed some of Daniela Acitelli's narration like Morgan, Noel, and her old lady voices but others were annoying or weird sounding like Owen and the psychic lady. Owen's voice was so weird, it had me wondering how Morgan could be conflicted by him at all.

What a great story. I was so into this story. I was on the edge of my seat and couldn't wait to start listening each day. I didn't like the way the narrator pronounced things when talking with any of the male characters (slow and deliberate).
This book doesn't stand on its own. It just stops and you need the next book to continue the story. I don't like books that can't stand on their own.

What did you like best about Come to the Tower, Love? What did you like least?
I found the story to be slow to begin with then it picked up towards the end. The ending was rushed, there were I few things that were not explained. I did not like the heroin Morgan as much as I liked the priest (Noel). I liked the interaction between Noel and Morgan. In my opinion that was the best part.I solved who did it quite quickly the only thing I got wrong is the why which surprised me.I didn't find it spooky at all. I have listened to other murder mysteries which were a lot more creepy then this.With a bit more work this could be a really good book
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Make it more creepy since it is a Gothic book. I would have kept away from Owen the gardener. since she did not really like him from the beginning then she changed her mind towards the end because of a certain situation. which I found very stupid of her to do, since she broke her own rule not to date men at the moment. When she tried to break it off she took ages! Why. I did not think it was difficult. She found she liked another guy so she tried to break it off with Owen and yet she let him kiss her. What! Then something happened which she has only herself to blame for. I do not feel any sympathy for her at all. The ending was rushed. I believe it needs more time spent on it. As I mentioned before I liked the interaction between Morgan and Noel. This was the best thing (in my opinion) of the book.
What didn’t you like about Daniela Acitelli’s performance?
I don't believe this Narrator suited this book. I found her to have the same monotone for each character she did. I did not differentiate between them at all.
If this book were a film would you go see it?
I would go and see this if it was done into a movie, since they would do a better effect of the Gothic theme.
Any additional comments?
