A coming-of-age, quirky story about the Brontes' last surviving ancestor, and the scavenger hunt her dead father sets for her from beyond the grave.
Surprising page-turner about mother-daughter grifters, family drama, thriller, murder, and revenge.
For fans of Outlander - you'll love the time travel perspectives, the mystery, and the Scottish headlands.
A strong mystery that reads like an Agatha Christie. Intricate plot and characters, with each character having their own will and desires. It was hard to know who to trust, and to what extent.
Nothing like a dead great-aunt to haunt you. This book was a fun, flirty read, with a haunting ghost who happens to be your dead great-aunt who wants nothing more than to dance with handsome (living) men and get her stolen necklace back.
Olive is just as likable as Nancy Drew, and the mystery is as thought out as an Agatha Christie one, though without quite as much mood and intrigue.
It was solid enough and it’s clear the writer has a lawyer’s mind in building a case and going through details. The writing was flat, however...
4 stars As usual, Ruth Ware wraps you around her twisty finger and pulls you in against your will.
It did not disappoint.
