Ultimately, the bad writing did me in and I didn't care for any of the characters. Grace didn't seem all that compelling and I never sensed she mourned the loss of her mother. It just seemed like a plot device to get her involved with the mystery. Matthew was just too convenient as the sidekick and love interest. Amity didn't seem to add a whole lot until the craziness in the last few pages. Jane and Mr. Jameson were essentially caricatures of Irish house staff a la Downton Abbey.
The bottom line is that I'm so disappointed that an intriguing concept and a fascinating setting didn't come together. I wanted to feel that kind of ghost story that only the Gitche Gumee can conjure and it fell far short of being so.
