For RIP IV.
A young woman named Mary must go to her Aunt’s in Cornwall per her mother’s dying wish. She finds an unsavory inn/tavern with despicable clientele in a desolate location. The locals fear the place, her Auntie has gone loony and her new Uncle is a brute. Mary suspects foul play; actually she is warned of it and to keep her nose out of it.
Will she survive the unholy shenanigans?! Will she find love on the lonesome wild moors?
Well, yes. She does. That’s not really a spoiler, is it? Mary is a tough cookie despite, alas, her being only a girl.
It was a bit tedious the first 200 pages but it picks up and flies when the danger and treachery and suspense of how it all will turn out finally comes to a head.
RATING: Three slices of pie. Not my favorite DDuM but I count her as a favorite author still.
And no matter how bad the movie might be, I really want to see it! Have you?
