    One thought on “On the Edge of the Woods”

    1. I ve been craving a good gothic with a haunted house, and I need to keep looking, for this wasn t it This novel is well written enough at many levels, but the main character is an idiot It s full of plot contrivances that could be fixed with one direct question on her part, or on the part of others, and no one ever asks them though they are dying to know the answers Are you engaged No Hey, problem solved When, toward the end of the book that escalated to people saying, But your life is in danger [...]

    2. This book was just ok It wasn t really a Gothic tale that it was advertised as and a mediocre romance at best It was a light fluffy novel that I m sure, I ll forget about by the next novel I read.

    3. this book is exactly what it promises a Gothic It had all the elements and the feel of the type of Gothic novels I read decades ago kinda fun change of pace.

    4. I was loaned this book Friday afternoon at work and brought it home With my reader s mind not being able to wrap around Pandora s Daughter, and having left Crooked Moon in my locker at work, I decided to open up On the Edge of the Woods and give it a whirl.Well I was the one taken for a whirl Immediately, I was drawn into the story Written in first person, the main character has an easy, smooth elegance in her tone as she s telling her adventures of finding this enormous old house up in the moun [...]

    5. The Gothic novel is perhaps one of my favorite literary indulgences I count Victoria Holt, Rona Randall, Madeleine Brent, M.M Kaye, etc as some of my most beloved literary friends I am very selective about what Gothic novels I read Needless to say, when I stumbled across Diane Tyrrel s On the Edge of the Woods in the Gothic novel section of the used book store, I was skeptical Yet another modern novelist touting herself as one who has picked up the baton from the greats of the 1960s, much as man [...]

    6. This is a contemporary Gothic novel, with many of the required characteristics creepy old house with secret rooms, dangerous romance, unexplained deaths, and a hero who saves the damsel in distress Although written 2004, the book takes place in the early 1990s, which adds a quaintness to the tale no cell phones to call a friend when the damsel in distress needs help, the possibility of stealing someone s snail mail and finding some juicy news, and the discovery of hand written letters long tucke [...]

    7. I picked this book up for 2 at a charity book sale, because the blurb sounded interesting and I liked that it called itself a gothic novel I had high hopes for this one and I was left disappointed.None of the characters were very interesting especially Stacy, the main character She was too much of a Mary Sue for my tastes Everyone was always falling in love with her, she was great at her job, and just super good at everything For some reason, the main love interest suspect, Brand, was almost rep [...]

    8. A gothic novel, I enjoyed the story A Victorian home, that used to be apart of a plantation, that was divided The previous owner, no longer able to care for the home and residing in a nursing home The new owner, Stacy Addison buys the home, she is an architect and plans on renovating the home Along the way, she meets new neighbors, learns one is very upset that the house was sold to her and keeps getting hang up calls, harassing calls, and begins to suspect Brand, who wanted the home for himself [...]

    9. I enjoyed this book Mostly It got a little tedious in parts the sloooow moving love story had me impatient at times , and the total and complete lack of any communication bored me, but where people finally told her things about the house, and she started figuring things out, I was really into it It was quite good writing, I just would have liked a little faster paced story I used to read gothics and mysteries back when I was a teenager, and have found myself wanting to go back to some of those l [...]

    10. What I love most about this book is the way Tyrrel manages the tension between her protagonist and Brand, one of the love interests Without overdone sexuality, she manages to capture that hot feeling one cannot avoid when attraction occurs whether it s welcome or not Also being a fan of gothic romance and architecture, it was as if this book was written for me

    11. Started out loving this book, with it s descriptions of aged architecture and nature and ruggedly handsome men haha Even though the rhythm often seemed juvenile, I still enjoyed it that is, until about the last third of the book when a million and one dramatic clich s raced fervently to a speedy ending It was okay.

    12. This was an excellent gothic mystery I loved the big old house Stacey bought I loved her relationship with Brand I loved the suspician that was cast on him and all the neighbors till it all came together in the end and you found out who did it.

    13. Good book Excellent twist at the end I haven t read a gothic novel like that since my gothic literature class Some typos that made me wonder how an author can still get published, but still a book I recommend to others.

    14. it was a great contemporary Gothic romance I am in love with old Gothic romances, and I liked the flow of this one.

    15. Interesting book I just read it because it called itself a Gothic Romance I was intrigued I enjoyed reading it, but it s another one of those junk food books.

    16. Just OK Would not recommend Very predictable Found it in a thrift store and thought it might be very suspensefult at all.

    17. It s been sometime since I read this book but I really enjoyed it I thought it was verty well written This is a book for someone who enjoys romance but is not a Romance novel person

    18. A friend lent me this book to read This was just ok for me I knew early on that I was interested in finding out the secret of the house than about the relationships.
