Love notes from Vinegar House

'Love notes from Vinegar House' is another top novel by Australian author, Karen Tayleur.
The books begins with an introduction by Freya Jackson Kramer.
'There are three things you should know about me if we're going to be friends' she writes.
1. Don't tease her about her middle name.
2. Freya is ambivalent about ghosts. 'Sitting on the ghost fence' she says.
3. Freya believes in karma, and after interfering with some love notes in Vinegar House she knows she is due for payback.

So we enter Freya's world in a small seaside village. Freya has had an argument with her peers at school and is ignoring Facebook due to a certain ...incident.

She is relieved to escape to Vinegar House for the holidays, until she discovers her foe and cousin Rumer will be there.
Further complicating matters is the arrival of Luke, who used to be Freya's best friend and neighbour until matters became tricky and he hooked up with Rumer.
Freya tries to ignore Luke, but it is not easy!

Then mysterious things happen : weird plumbing, unexplained love notes and secrets in the attic.
Freya is determined to get to the bottom of the situation.
Freya is a delightful main character; vulnerable and funny.
The novel is part humour and part ghost story.
