Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Friday, September 30, 2016
I got this fair-condition softcover from the LFL on Fair St. in Newburyport MA, while dropping off some books of my own. I love du Maurier's writing; not sure how I'll feel about her being the main character in someone else's mystery!

Later: The story wasn't bad, and it was fun spotting the references to plot-points and characters that would appear in du Maurier's actual books - most of them in Rebecca as of this volume, though there are others too. (There are mentions of a secret garden, which amused me even though du Maurier didn't write The Secret Garden.)

By the time the in-book Daphne starts musing about how she'd use the silent, sinister housekeeper, the fun had diminished a bit, and the plot itself seemed to be overworked, but it had its points.
