  1. Nicely woven mystery, romance is a little lacking I liked this book but will not read it again. It has all the ingredients of a good gothic novel, a lonely man, haunted heroine and a mysterious villain, but it also had some macabre scenes and Ms. Silver describes some of the crimes with a little too much detail. 

  2. Not up to author’s usual standard Loaded with angst driven melodrama, this one is more gory than mysterious. There is also so little romance that we are expected to believe their connection comes from a deep ability to “see” each other’s emotional wounds. I’d say that 90% of this story is told in ‘thought’ because we are given what each (all) character is thinking to an irritating, angst filled degree. Potential villains are trotted out for our consideration and I was only mildly surprised at who this sick individual…

  3. Jane Eyre-Similar and More This romance is a cut above the average star-crossed lovers story, a thriller of a mystery with a large dose of Jane Eyre tossed in. A beautiful teacher at an 19th-century girls’ school, a mysterious widower, his mute daughter, and a murderer who is killing women with long blonde hair, are the ingredients for a story which will keep you guessing until the last moment.
