Although filled with annoying anachronisms like, "Nice work if you can get it." and "This isn't fun anymore." , this is still an enjoyable book. The setting and plot are very compelling and the male love interest is very charming. I was quite fascinated by the society of witches during the time of Louis XIV and the way they formed a mutual self-help society. The book was ultimately a page turner. It was an enjoyable romp despite all the irritating details. I was especially impressed that the author was able to create the typical independent, intelligent, headstrong female heroine within the constraints of the plot and the setting. Not a great book, but a fun read.
