Rabbit {Paint me like one of your 19th century gothic heroines!}
This book was ok(?).

It was a gothic pulp that would have been better if it was longer, because everything felt rushed. Things were wrapped up way too quickly for my liking. I was expecting more.

Better than the lackluster inanity that was Shorecliff, but still not particularly good. This one had a better story -- I liked the unexpected, if hamfisted, switch between love interests -- but it needed more. More writing skill, more characterization, more page count; take your pick (though, to be fair, pulp length restrictions were usually dictated by the publisher).

2.5 stars, rounded up for the lolzy Scooby Doo entertainment factor.

I had never read an old-school gothic romance before. Now I have. I don't particularly recommend it.
Cliches all around, from the madwoman in the attic to the young governess, the handsome cad, the lookalike. The only thing that keeps it from one star is my ludicrously low expectations going in, which it met.

Even as gothic romance go, it's a mess - but it's a fun mess.
