I found this book and excitedly purchased it. The premise is a good one, and I did finish the book. Of course, I always finish books. I'm not sorry that I read it, but it was overly long and detailed to the point of dragging in many places. I also found the mention of Theo Pelinore bizarre. She died at the end of a book written more than a decade ago: one without cell phones (which this book had).
All in all, it was a decent read, but it won't make my go-to library.
The story itself sets up as many Thorne books do, in California in a small tourist town. This town is host to Blue Lady Lake and the historic Cliffhouse Lodge. The lodge is home to the Bellamys; Adam, Teddy, their daughter Sara and honorary aunt Maisy. The Lodge and its surrounds seem idyllic as the story begins at the end of summer celebration of Labor Day. Unfortunately, a killer is celebrating a new partnership as the Blue Lady joins him. A mix of horror and humor, often at the same time (you simply must meet Dr. Siechert!), The Cliffhouse Haunting is well worth the investment of time and money for lovers of literate, witty horror.
