I'm only half way through, and not enjoying this book as much as I have her past stories. This one seems much more contrived, the characters forced, almost as if someone else is writing instead of Ms. Childs. I always look forward to a new book from her and this time I am disappointed!

Enjoyed as always- great characters. Mystery was a tad obvious if you know Ms. Child's general plot/system. Still enjoyable!
