I picked up this book because the cover editorial review compared it to Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier. I truly love that book (who doesn’t?) and so I picked this one up with great expectations.
Unfortunately, who can live up to a classic such as Rebecca? And this book certainly did not. Though there were undertones which were the same (a rushed romance followed by questions regarding the first wife) the big reveal of how the first wife did die was anticlimatic, especially compared to Rebecca.
Also, the secondary ghost story was disappointing. How could she not realize what her brother had done? And the reason behind the visions was, again, anticlimatic.
Standing alone, this book would have been fine but for the fact that it was modeled after Rebecca and advertised to be like it and it simply did not measure up.
