THE SUMMER HOUSE
TITLE: THE SUMMER HOUSE
AUTHOR: CHRISTOBEL KENT
Details: Large Print
Rose Fell has left England for a tiny village in Italy after her divorce, but even after a year there she's still finding it hard to integrate.
Elvira Vitale, once a famous model and movie star spends her summers in the same village with her English husband who she's starting to distrust.
Ania is Romanian and works as Elvira's cleaner.
When a young girl is found murdered close to the village and Ania subsequently disappears the lives of the women are thrown together by a danger that for at least one of them is much closer than they could imagine.
This was a good mystery with some nice red herrings, but it wasn't a very satisfying read. The story moved too slowly for me with too much switching from one person to another. It wasn't exactly a struggle to finish this book, but the story wasn't calling me to finish it either.
