Publisher's Summary

The top five Sunday Times best seller.

Theatres have a certain kind of magic. When the curtain rises, we are all enraptured by the glare of the lights and the smell of the greasepaint, but it's when the curtain falls that the real drama begins.... 

In 1952 two young lovers meet, in secret, at the beautiful Southern Cross theatre in the very heart of London's West End. Their relationship is made up of clandestine meetings and stolen moments because there is someone who will make them suffer if he discovers she is no longer 'his'. But life in the theatre doesn't always go according to plan, and tragedy and heartache are waiting in the wings for all the players.... 

Almost 70 years later, a new production of When the Curtain Falls arrives at the theatre, bringing with it Oscar Bright and Olive Green and their budding romance. Very soon, though, strange things begin to happen, and they learn about the ghost that's haunted the theatre since 1952, a ghost who can be seen on only one night of the year. Except the ghost is appearing more often and seems hell-bent on sabotaging Oscar and Olive. The young couple realise they need to right that wrong from years gone by, but can they save themselves before history repeats itself and tragedy strikes once more?   

Moulin Rouge meets Phantom of the Opera in this spellbinding and magical story of unrequited love and revenge. When the Curtain Falls is Carrie Hope Fletcher at her romantic best - it will take your breath away.

C Fletchers best book yet!

My previous complaints with Carrie Hope Fletcher books centered around the stakes not being set high enough and, oh boy, did that change with this novel. This book has everything I loved about her previous books + the developed skill of a more seasoned writer! Trigger warning for sexual assult, not overly graphic and handeled very well in my opinion.

Good but not Carrie's best imo

tried to start it 3 times before I got into it. it got better and better though. love Carrie Fletchers other books so much, not sure why this one didn't resonate with me as much.
