The premise of Eileen Favorite's first novel is intriguing: heroines from some of the great works of literature take breaks from their books and enjoy some R&R at a bed-and-breakfast. After establishing this, however, the book has a hard time deciding what it wants to be. In turn, it displays aspects of a juvenile adventure, a fantasy, a bodice-ripper, and a psychological thriller, with no genre ultimately dominating. Narrator Charlotte Parry's difficulties handling the text may stem from this confusion. She presents the voice of the first-person narrator, a 13-year-old girl, well enough. But the other characters, from Scarlett O'Hara to an Irish warlord, and everyone in between, offer a challenge that Parry's range of accents and dramatic ability fail to meet convincingly.
