                              REVIEW   

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The mystery and the paranormal scenes really lent a supernatural and Gothic feel to the story. There were plenty of twists in the tale which kept me guessing and I was completely caught off guard when the killer was revealed.
I liked the romance. It was nice and subtle and didn't overshadow the main story.

I am still confused about title. The story is set in England but the people live in a chateau in Swansea.
I thought it was either going to be set in France or Wales as the family lived in a chateau in Swansea. It just didn't make sense.
There is no explanation why it's called a chateau as the characters are not French. It would be less confusing if it was a castle with an English name rather than a French castle named after a city in Wales but set in England.
