The beginning seems promising, places it into a genre. Unfortunately, it doesn't really deliver on the genre. It's a messy mish mash of different parts, with characters drifting in and out on a whim. Many sudden changes not foreshadowed. Melodramatic ending. Fundamentally, it really just needs to tighten its belt and cut the chaff.

Spoiler-free // I adored this book! Ghosts, old houses, light witchery, slow uncovering of forgotten stories, sweet light romance. I was particularly impressed by how well the pacing and split-narrative were balanced through this book, only one clue-finding moment my brain felt was a little too convenient. I found the characters all convincing - well-rounded, making believable choices, etc. - I was never taken out of the story by anyone's actions, which was excellent. It is a short novel, so there will likely be aspects a reader wants more of - I personally want to read all the found notebooks and letters in their entirety, but understand that would've made for very bad pacing. ;) Really enjoyed the insider details of museum work the author brought to this, an excellent touch for the historical setting.

If you read the back-cover summary and thought "ooo that sounds up my alley", you're in for a nice historical gothic romance time with this one! Extremely glad I picked up a copy for my home library, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

A predictable romance type of novel with cliche expressions. The fact that books and a library are at the heart of this novel kept me reading. There is accult mysticism to this novel also. It’s not bad but not great either.

When I picked up this book, I thought it was historical fiction. I was very confused and delighted when it turned out to be more than that. Ivy was an extremally likeable character, as were most of the supporting cast. There were some parts that seemed to move so fast for no reason, but I like that the reasons for it are revealed later on. This was a fun read!
