3.5 stars is what I'd like to rate this, but there is no half star on this site (hint, hint Goodreads!)

I liked this book, but it could have been at least 100 pages shorter. I believe the author felt the lengthy descriptions and such were necessary to create the mood of the novel but more than once it just felt excessive.

It was a good 'throw back' novel, reminiscent of Rebecca. I thought the bones of the story were good and it kept me guessing right to the end.
