We appreciate your feedback. Would I read a book two? But most annoying of all is the constant harping on about how bloody great Elloise where the story is set is.

I really didn’t find it spooky either. It wasn’t ghostly or spooky, was it meant to be a mystery or a thriller I don’t know but it finniyan succeed on either.
