Eloise Synopsis

With a history of depression, Cathy is only just recovering from a nervous breakdown and her husband Chris, a psychiatrist, is acutely aware of his wife's mental frailty. When Cathy tells Chris of her suspicions about Eloise's death, as well as her ability to sense Eloise's spirit, Chris thinks she is losing her grip on reality once again. Stung by her husband's scepticism, Cathy decides to explore Eloise's mysterious past, putting herself in danger as she finds herself drawn ever deeper into her friend's great - and tragic - secret. Compulsively-readable and incredibly haunting, this is the debut novel from broadcaster, journalist and Book Club champion, Judy Finnigan.

Eloise Press Reviews

Atmospheric, creepy and original, Judy has written a blinder of a first novel Sun 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 Haunting thriller Cornwall Today An assured first novel Choice magazine
