Greygallows by Barbara Michael

Greygallows - Barbara Michaels

This was really disappointing, actually. It had an interesting premise, but never really took off. The main character, Lucy, was so passive that she made me want to spit nails. The villain was cartoonish. The hero was passably attractive, but nothing special.

 

The suspense aspect of the book just fell flat for me. It took forever for things to get going, followed by an abrupt and convenient ending. If I were required to describe this book in one word, that word would be "meh."

 

It's not a bad book. It's just not a good book either. At least I can use it for Halloween bingo.
