Yesterday was International Cat Day. So when I can across this title I was attracted to it. Though the book is probably more mystery than romance, I'm registering it as a romance as that genre is underrepresented on my bookshelf.

From the Publisher:

Bryony Ashley knows that her family's grand estate is both hell and paradise -- once elegant and beautiful, yet mired in debt and shrouded in shadow. Devastated by her father;s sudden strange death abroad, she is nonetheless relieved to learn the responsibility of running Ashley Court has fallen to a cousin. Still, her father's final, dire warning about a terrible family curse haunts her days and her dreams.

This book interested me at first with Bryony's seemingly supernatural communication with a "lover." I found that there was just too much set up for the drama of her father's death and the fate of his estate and lost interest. I made it to page 118. I do want to read Mary Stewart. She was a cultural phenomena in her day. Fortunately, I found my public library owns this book. Perhaps I'll return to it some day.
