TROMPE' L'OEIL is the story of young American scholar, Rachel, that comes to France to write the history of a locally famous chateau. After the death of the mistress, Rachel is confronted with mystery, intrigue, and a touch of the supernatural. Caroline Miller has produced a work with characters that draw you into the work. Also, she keeps you guessing about what is REALLY going on at the chateau. Though this type of work isn't my normal type of read, I enjoyed it from cover to cover. I would recommend TROMPE' L'OEIL to anyone that enjoys a good character driven mystery.
