I enjoyed this book up until the author started to struggle to find an ending. The last fifty pages or so flounder along dodging bits and pieces of plot that should have been left out. Far too much hinting at the histories of characters rather than fleshing them out. It can be effective for certain aspects of a story but not substantial enough to base an entire novel on.

A little slow going, but, all in all not a bad ghost story. Would make a good movie with special effects.

Unreadable, boring, boring, boring, kept falling asleep after t5he first page and never even got to the 3rs page after trying to read this for 3 days. This Stock Broker should keep her daytime job because as a writer she sure bombs major.
