The Secret Woman (Casablanca Classics) - Victoria Holt

I'm curious what Moonlight thinks of this one. The reveal came out of nowhere I thought and how the "villain" was caught kind of lame. I started to suspect this person, but didn't realize everything that we are told. 

 

I do think that Holt doesn't do a great job writing heroes that you can like. I didn't like Red and thought he was despicable. I can't root for a married hero who treats his wife horribly. I get that Gothic books are supposed to have tall and dark brooding heroes. I just can't understand why Anna was even attracted to the guy.

 

Speaking of Anna, she was not a great character. Things just kept happening around her. She really played no part in this story which was weird.
