What a cover amirite!?
This sounded like a book I could really get behind, especially in the days leading up to Halloween. Spooky, creepy ghosties on the Titanic? A haunted young woman is doomed to experience a second disastrous voyage on another ocean liner? Sign me up.
Unfortunately, it was a little disappointing. I was prepared for chills and thrills. Not so much. I was hoping for fantastic clothes and settings, and I got those for the most part I suppose. It just never pulled together into a fulfilling journey. The main character, Annie’s issues over time pretty much just devolved into “bitches be crazy”. I felt the plot was missing some depth … ha … see what I did there? Depth? Titanic? Yeah … I know, I’ll stop.
The book was a little entertaining. Not spooky enough by half. It had the kind of upstairs/downstairs romances that could be expected but nothing to write home about or get excited about. Not a bad book, just not really for me I suppose.
