Publisher's Summary

Yesterday I almost saw her. I was standing on the sun deck, looking out to sea, revelling in the unexpected warmth of the February sun. A butterfly trembled on a nearby buddleia and suddenly I smelled her perfume.She wasn't there, of course. How could she be when I had seen her lying in her coffin just two weeks ago, the day before she was buried, her casket surrounded by the scented candles she loved? She lay in Cornish ground now....
Compulsively readable and incredibly haunting, this is the debut novel from broadcaster, journalist and Book Club champion, Judy Finnigan.

It started really well. It had the potential to be completely gripping. However, the dynamics between the characters did not ring true. I was increasingly frustrated, seeing the ending coming but hoping against hope it would not be so.

The supernatural element did not ring true either. No self respecting ghost, taking the trouble to stick around that much, would be that criptic. It sent me up the wall.

On the plus side, it was superbly written by a woman who, I wuld say, is no stranger to heartbreak and emotional harship. That analysis was superb. Reader too.

Loved it

This the 1st book written by Judy Finnican, after hearing an interview on the radio I thought I would give it a listen. The book is engaging right from the beginning. It is well written and I could relate to the main character very quickly. The book is set in Cornwall, a place I have never been but the description of the area really made me want to visit soon.

Well done Judy really enjoyed your 1st book, can't wait for the next.
