it was ok

Your typical neo-Gothic romance, with a banal heroine who visits the creepy mansion where her mom died in order to uncover the secrets surrounding her father's disappearance. Includes the two potential lovers - shady characters through most of the story, with one being pronounced "good" & the other as "bad" at the end of the story - and a cast of one-dimensional "filler" characters who exist only to serve the writer's need for a convenient way of conveying information that the heroine (& readers) need in order to solve the mystery. Comes complete with the traditional happy ending in which the heroine risks herself -& experiences personal realization/growth- in order to solve the mystery and land the "good" man.

The book started slow - and all the answers are revealed before page 90, if you know what you're looking for. I expected more from MZB than what this book delivered.
