I thought this was OK. The style is hard to describe, but for a purported "mystery" I didn't find it particularly compelling. It probably didn't help that I started it before a vacation and read three-plus books before getting back to it. The characterization was pretty good (though, as I find with so many British authors, the American characters' dialogue was not completely "natural").

I really enjoy Fraser's writing, particularly her biographies. I've read two Jemima Shore mysteries now, and I'd like to get more of them.
