I enjoyed the beginning of this book. The writing reminded me strongly of Mary Stewart so I expected a gothic romance of similar tone. An unusual prologue depicts one of the unusual deaths involved in the legend surrounding Wild Fell, a Gothic mansion built on an island of Ontario, Canada. Chapter one introduced a new character: Jameson Browning, feeling guilty about leaving his Alzheimer-stricken father in the care of a nurse, begins to reminiscence about growing up in a divorced home with a lesbian for a best friend, while explaining how he inadvertently discovered a ghost. Read the first 105-pages in one sitting. Then, a mistake, a big one. The nurse caring for Jameson's dad was originally called Nurse Ardelia Jackson but she morphed into Bedelia Jackson on page 105. Combine that with me remembering Amelia Jackson instead of Ardelia... I double-checked to make sure that I wasn't mistaken about the name mix-up and was surprised to discover Ardelia instead of Amelia. But the end result remains the same - the story lost its steam. After that, I noticed every flub and it seemed the editing deteriorated toward the end of the story - an end that didn't make sense because it felt rushed. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for review from NetGalley. The copy I received did not specify this as an uncorrected proof so I can't guarantee editorial changes in other editions.
