REVIEW: The Cottingley Cuckoo

I’m really torn on how to rate this one. I LOVED Part I. It was magical and atmospheric and a little creepy. Rose is working at an old folk’s home and meets one of the more difficult residents, Charlotte. Charlotte allows Rose to read a letter from her past to Arthur Conan Doyle about the discovery of fairies. Rose becomes more and more intrigued that fairies might very real and that their mischief might be impacting her life. The fear grows with each letter and each unusual happening in her own life. Part II turned from magical fantasy into a bit more of psychological horror. It was a bit too slow moving and not enough happened to really keep my interest at that point. I don’t say this often but I would have preferred that this were a novella of just Part I, I would have given that 5 stars, the whole thing is somewhere in the 3-ish range.

This one was 100% a cover buy for me, because come on, isn’t that gorgeous?! Are you a cover buyer? What’s the last one where the book didn’t meet your cover expectations?
