This was one of Phyllis Whiney's earlier books. I really enjoyed it. It had lots of mysterious happenings along with a little romance. I loved the descriptions of Poinciana,a wealthy family's Florida estate, and could picture it quite clearly from the good descriptions. The ending was quite a shock to me, and I can honestly say I had no idea who the murderer was till the very end. I love when a book can keep me guessing.

Not a particular favorite but still a great story. I absolutely love gothic romances with all of the mystery and the strong female characters. Phyllis A. Whitney is an amazing author incorporating an unforgettable story with amazing characters.

I normally like Phyllis A. Whitney but I had a lot of trouble finishing this book. The main reason was because I wanted to slap the heroine for being so hesitant.
