Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good, but not perfect I quite enjoyed the book. It was overly dramatic, predictable at times, and the general style suggests a first or second novel, but still worth the time and lost sleep.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spooky and fun The Good Stuff Wonderful love story intertwined with ghost story - perfection!!! Ghosts - thank you, I love me good ghost stories and there are so very few these days Gothic feel, reminds me of those fabulous Victoria Holt novels I read when I was a young teen - this is a compliment, those books made me fall in love with reading Perfect for reading on a dark and stormy night Enjoyed the relationship between Violet and Lord Jaspar Violet is an absolutely delightfully likeable character. I fell in love with her immediately Fabulous dialogue Hooked me in from the very first paragraph - kept me up till 1 am reading. I was very hard pressed to put the damn thing down Please Alyxandra, write more of these, there are so very few well written Gothic ghost stories Perfect uses of humour There was a ghost dog, how can you not love a story that has a ghost dog The Not So Good Stuff Wanted more No redeeming qualities in Violet's mother - she felt more like a caricature than an actual fully fleshed character Favorite Quotes/Passages " I'd made her angry and vulnerable and I didn't need to be told she wouldn't forgive me for it. I knew girls like Tabitha - I'd been raised by one. She would need some kind of revenge." "I wandered through the huge room with its towering walls of books. There were so many to choose from. It was better than chocolate cream biscuits, better than Xavier's kiss-and nearly as good as Colin's." "You look lovely, and more importantly, you're positively glowing with ectoplasm." 4 Dewey's I picked this up at Forster's Book Garden Ltd in Bolton after meeting Alyxandra at OLA

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I'm not one to buy into the whole ghost genre, however I thought I would check out this book since I enjoyed the authors other books so much. I'm really glad I did, this book was breath taking. I can't wait for the author to come out with more books for me and society to enjoy.
