The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson

Dina, our program director,  just read a book that she is eager to share with others. 

The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson "has shades of Daphne de Maurier and Hitchcock" says USA Today.  The review goes on to say "The scent of lavender seems to waft from the pages of The Lantern, a hypnotic tale of suspicion set in the south of France. The Lantern is a worthy addition to novels "written in the tradition" of Daphne du Maurier.”  The Lantern has been shortlisted in the Epic Romantic Novel category for the Romantic Novelists' Association's 2012 Awards. 

While reading it Dina said "I was mentally transported to the house and setting.  I could smell the flowers so fragrant coming up from the pages. I was pulled in right away as the mystery unfolded".
