Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The latest in a long line of highly successful romances by veteran author Whitney The Ebony Swan , etc. is a lightweight piece of fluff guaranteed to strain the credulity of her most diehard fans. Events are set in motion when Lauren Castle travels from her California home to the rugged resort of Lake Lure, N.C., as a result of an anonymous letter suggesting that her husband's death some two years earlier was not an accident. It seems that Jim Castle had learned something about the long-ago suicide of beautiful film star Victoria Frazer, who drowned herself in Lake Lure and who just happens to be Lauren's grandmother--a fact known only to Jim and his old friend Gordon Heath, the man Lauren has come to realize too late is her real love. Spaceships, UFOs and government cover-ups all come to light in Lauren's investigation, which is endangered by threats on her life. The bizarre climax fails to resolve a plethora of subplots, making this one-dimensional effort as unsatisfying as it is improbable. Only Whitney's atmospheric evocation of the rugged setting has anything to recommend it. Sept.
Denise Perry Donavin
This tangled contemporary tale of murder and romance is haunted by an adulterous affair between two Hollywood stars of the 1930s. Lauren Castle, granddaughter of this liaison, visits the North Carolina site of her mother's supposed suicide after Lauren's husband dies in a mysterious accident while filming at this haunted location. As Whitney weaves stories from the past with Lauren's present-day search, the novelist sets up an assembly line of possible villains: is it the dead woman's brother? sister? ex-lover? the ex-lover's wife? the ex-lover's granddaughter? The villainess is not terribly surprising, but the suspense is well plotted in this swift-moving novel by a pro.

    Great book.

    As with all of Phyllis Whitney's books, this one wouldn't let me put it down. Great read.

    Strange plot, nicely written.

    I enjoyed this book, but, however, the plot and the ending were a bit too odd for my liking. All in all, this book was a fun and easy read.
