  • Intense, sinister, and mystical!

    In this debut novel by James, The Woman in the Mirror, she transports us to the rugged cliffside of Cornwall, England during 1947, as well as present-day, and into a family manor where powerful emotions swirl, tragic memories reside, and long-buried skeletons and secrets are in abundance. The prose is ominous and dark. The characters are complex, lonely, and troubled, with the setting, Winterborne Hall, being a character itself with its dereliction and isolation. And the plot told from alternating timelines is a gripping, suspenseful tale full of familial drama, heartache, tension, obsession, death, revenge, cruelty, desperation, and violence, all interwoven with a sliver of the supernatural. Overall, The Woman in the Mirror is a gothic, atmospheric, eerie tale that captivates from the very first page and ultimately leaves you chilled, mystified, and entertained.

  • Creepy book

    This is an eerie book switching from 1947 to present day. The author describes the creepy gothic house with a flare that had me shivering and wanting a light turned on. The characters are quite dark and haunting, making the hair on my arms stand on end. While this book seems like a story of obsession and love it is actually a book of ghosts and possession. When Alice took the job as governess she saw it as a start of a new life but things quickly changed as unexplained things started to happen. The story continues getting darker as Alice learns more about the women that have died in the house. This book is well written and the story unfolds fluidly. The book’s two timelines lend a welcome change as it may seem overwhelming if it stayed in the past. If you like creepy, eerie stories you will love this one, especially the ending. Thank you Net Galley, Rebecca James and St Martins Press for the chance to read this book.
