It was very funny this was my third buddy read with my friend Catherine. The last book we read was inspired by Pride and Prejudice and the first book we read was the classic The Turn of the Screw which this book was obviously inspired by.

I have never not loved a Jennifer Crusie book. This one starts slow and isn't as laugh out loud funny as some of her earlier books, but it is great fun and well put together.

Unlike the original, this take on Turn of the Screw is not as claustrophobic (and has a happy ending!) The housekeeper is untrustworthy and unlikeable and the uncle actually cares and comes to help. There are many more differences but I won't ruin it for other readers. Ms Crusie does a wonderful job of using the original book as a skeleton and creating a lovely romantic ghost story.
