I'm glad you liked this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it - every bit as much as her first novel - and will definitely be looking out for more of her work. Which reminds me - have you read Susan Fletcher? If not I would definitely recommend her too.

That is a very intriguing premise/opening indeed!

I'm intrigued by your review.

The Wilding Sisters sounds like a satisfying summer read and a great prompt pick! Overtones of Daphne du Maurier and Barbara Vine is very tempting description as I enjoy them both.

I was almost going to pick up her first book directly since I bought it before I even had this one, but I sort of want something just a little different, and the stories seem a little similar (which is not a bad thing in my book at all). I have read Eve Green by Susan Fletcher and I have several others of her books. I should really get back to her as well....

Danielle

I love books like this--especially when done really well. And this one worked quite nicely. Now I have another by her to hold in reserve!

Danielle

I really liked this one--if you like this sort of suspense story I can heartily recommend it. Perfect for fall reading really.

Danielle

It did work well for my prompt and in a way that was not so predictable. A 'garden' book with a twist! Both authors are favorites of mine and anything that is like them is probably going to catch my eye!

Both of Eve Chase's books feature big houses and families but I don't think they are that similar from what I remember.
'Eve Green' is really excellent and so are a lot of Susan Fletcher's other books - and all different too varying from the Scottish Highlands in the 18th century to Van Gogh's time in an asylum in Provence.

That's good to know about Eve Chase--I didn't read the description of that first book very well. I think I assumed as the settings were similar that the stories were as well. I loved Eve Green by Susan Fletcher and I think I have a few of her other books, but you know how it goes. I want to read all of them right now, but I am forever starting books and not finishing them when that happens! :) Have you read any good books set in Italy lately? Have you read Noccolo Ammaniti?

LizF

I have read Niccolo Ammaniti - I read I'm Not Scared - but I can't say I liked it. I thought it had a cold and rather nasty feel to be honest and I haven't read any more by him since, particularly as my daughter had to read him (in Italian) for her degree and said that the two other books she read had a similar tone and she really didn't enjoy him either.
