My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was light and a bit predictable, but I enjoyed it. A young woman is left stranded after her "Bernie Madoff" husband was exposed and died leaving her with all the mess. She had no friends, money or a place to live when a man came to her doorstop and asked if she would like a job as companion to his elderly mother, Ameris Sinclair. Sinclair turns out to be Julia's favorite horror story author who became a recluse in her Scottish castle on the border of Wisconsin and Canada. She doesn't know what to think but is about to become homeless in a day, so she agrees.
Once she gets to the castle and meets the inhabitants she is enchanted. Everything is just as the man said, the job won't be onerous and the setting is beautiful. Julia bears an uncanny resemblance to a beautiful woman who lived 100 years ago and she feels right at home. There is just one problem...a ghost. What follows is a clever twist on the old haunted mansion/ghost theme with a bit of romance thrown in.
