Another great read by Kate Atkinson. Admittedly, at first it was a bit confusing, trying to sort out all of the different characters and their various stories and timelines, but I soon got the hang of it. Atkinson is always very adept at weaving together multiple characters and storylines, and about halfway through the book, it all started to come together in a very clever manner.

My only regret is that I (unknowingly) read these books out of order. A couple years ago, I read "One Good Turn", then a couple months ago, I read "When Will There Be Good News?" ... and now this one. Although these books aren't really a series, there is definitely a chronological order to them, and looking back now, it would have made much more sense had I read this book first, then ".. Good News", then "Good Turn". Oh well, still very enjoyable books -- I love this writer's style and may have to find more like it!
