Eloise by Judy Finnigan

Book: Eloise
Author: Judy Finnegan
Narrator (if applicable):n/a

Release date (if applicable): Published

Synopsis: Cathy, an emotionally fragile woman, is devastated when she loses a friend unexpectedly . She is confused and angry because she thought her friend was getting better and in recovery after treatment for breast cancer, so why would she die so suddenly without the opportunity to say goodbye? When Eloise starts coming to her in dreams stating that her death was no natural occurrence, Cathy knows she must get to the truth. Are the dreams real though or just a figment of Cathy's fragile mind?  
My rating: 2 Stars
My opinion: This story really had the potential to be a downright creepy story with twists in several different directions to leave readers on their toes. However, the author failed to accomplish this. What readers were given was writing that seriously needs tightening up and a repetitiveness that detracts from an overall good story.

Furthermore, I felt there were periods of overwriting where scenes which should be creepy are simply laughable with the silliness of the dialog.

Finally, I felt the ending was rushed or that the author simply rushed the ending because a set number of pages were hit. The conclusion just felt off.
