Yesterday I almost saw her. I was standing on the sun deck, looking out to sea, revelling in the unexpected warmth of the February sun. A butterfly trembled on a nearby buddleia and suddenly I smelled her perfume. She wasn't there, of course. How could she be when I had seen her lying in her coffin just two weeks ago, the day before she was buried, her casket surrounded by the scented candles she loved? She lay in Cornish ground now...Compulsively-readable and incredibly haunting, this is the Sunday Times bestselling debut novel from broadcaster, journalist and Book Club champion, Judy Finnigan.

Exudes a deep and soulful sense of place. Romantic and rain-lashed, du Maurier's Cornwall haunts the pages of Eloise as powerfully as the spirit of the elusive heroine herself. A stirring and intriguing read Louise Candlish Judy Finnigan's gripping debut novel captures the mystery and menace of Cornwall in glorious gothic style Liz Fenwick Highly readable, incredibly moving in parts, and with wonderful echoes of Daphne Du Maurier, Eloise had me turning pages late into the night Dorothy Koomson A moving meditation on grief, family bonds, motherhood and female friendship Sunday Express a haunting, pacy page-turner, with a real ghostly feel - a must read Fabulous Magazine Impressive debut Woman & Home A great first book from the Queen of the Book Club Essentials A creepy ghost story ... the real star of the book is Judy's beloved Cornwall - a wild beautiful backdrop to the tale that is almost a character in itself Bella [Eloise] has a life of its own thanks to Finnigan's lack of pretension, light touch and obvious passion for the Cornish landscape, which is so lovingly described it's almost a character in its own right. A warm and promising debut Daily Mail Having run a wildly successful book club, championing new fiction, it was perhaps inevitable that Judy Finnigan should turn her hand to novel-writing. Eloise has nods to Daphne du Maurier and Emily Bronte in its vividly evoked Cornwall setting and story of a woman haunted in her dreams by the best friend who died of cancer. No vanity project this, Judy deserves to be taken seriously as a writer of thoughtful, descriptive fiction Choice An absorbing read - the kind of book you shouldn't start in the evening if you don't want to stay up all night Western Daily Press Haunting thriller Cornwall Today Atmospheric, creepy and original, Judy has written a blinder of a first novel Sun
