Mariana - Susanna Kearsley,  Carolyn Bonnyman

Entranced in parts. But I found some of the writing a bit ponderous & wordy. And as for the twist... no, I didn't pick it. Not even having seen reviews that said "OMG twistttttt!!!" (or words to that effect). Perhaps if the twist hadn't been such a surprise - if there had in fact been a few more clues, then it would have been a bit more credible. The author was so successful with her misdirection that I found it quite implausible. And minus points too, for leaving me in fear during large parts of the book that Julia was going to get hit by a car on a narrow country lane...
Having said all that, I anticipate I'll be reading more from Susanna Kearsley. But maybe not this year.
