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.
This book has been lurking on my TBR pile for way too long. Time to read it and move it along.
