House of Brides

The House of BridesThe House of Brides by Jane Cockram
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

In this contemporary spin on classic Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, Cockram misses the mark in her attempt to create an ominous story with a gothic flair. I was hoping for a creepy and disturbing tale. Instead, we get a formulaic reproduction with weak characters that don’t hide anything dark or grim. I did appreciate her characterization of three interesting kids and their stories within an otherwise lackluster novel.
