This debut has down on her luck Emily taking a job as a house assistant at a luxurious, remote beachside home in France. Obviously that's going to be pure bliss and nothing weird at all is going to happen, right? There is a great sense all along that something isn't right, but it's not clear what exactly is off about the family. The juxtaposition of the gorgeous setting and the "something's off" feeling made for a great story. My assumptions about where the story would go were consistently challenged as the story went in different directions. Is it supernatural? Is there something going on with the adult's relationships? What exactly is going on with daughter Aurelia? I'm hoping that Anna Downes has more stories to come!
