    I found this as a used book and fell in love with the story It s very fast moving and entertaining A page turner The only thing that bugs me is that I think Melissa might have an eating disorder She seems to skip a lot of meals Lol Other than that it keeps you wondering who the murderer is, what are the dark secrets of the family , and is their a spark between her and the main male character.

    Photographer Melissa Manion accepts a commission to document the ancestral home of her friend Charles in rural Virginia Once she gets there, she learns that the rest of the family aren t aware of her arrival Recent events have left the family leery of outsiders, including the disappearance of the lady of the house and the accusation that a member of the family murdered a local girl Multiple red herrings are raised and dropped in this brief tale, with the love plot thrown on very quickly and u Photographer Melissa Manion accepts a commission to document the ancestral home of her friend Charles in rural Virginia Once she gets there, she learns that the rest of the family aren t aware of her arrival Recent events have left the family leery of outsiders, including the disappearance of the lady of the house and the accusation that a member of the family murdered a local girl Multiple red herrings are raised and dropped in this brief tale, with the love plot thrown on very quickly and unconvincingly There are some effective passages of description of the house and its environs, but the ultimate reveal is less than satisfying

    I hope this is not representative of the quality of 70s gothic romances in general because it was AWFUL Wow.
