While this isn't my favorite of her books I did really like it and feel she is an incredibly talented author. Maybe her books won't win Pulitzers or whatever, but her characters have so much detail and depth that it is sheer pleasure to know them through the books.

Well written and held my interest thoughout. Made me laugh out loud in many places and the ending wasn't quite as predictable as I had thought.
For a cheapy that I bought as a bulk purchase from The Book People I'm very pleased - might even get around to reading the other 9.
