Read from December 19 to 20, 2010

Third book in the Isabel Dalhousie series. A lot of readers might be put off by the lacking of mystery in this book (there's a bit of one in there, but it's very very insignificant to the plot, sadly), but I actually love that Smith put so much effort into character and relationship developments, though I don't like it as well as the first two. The story went so many different directions that it felt a little scattered, and I'm unsatisfied with the ending, especially knowing how it will effect future books in the series.

One thing I love in this story is the engaging characters. No heroes or heroines, just people, warts and all and one cares about their interplay and how they resolve their problems, and a lovely, unexpected end that leaves one wanting to plunge straight into the next book of the series. The author's portrayal of protagonist Isabel is certainly strong enough that I've developed a sort of relationship with her.

In overall, I feel this series of books is like reading a soap opera. I am eagerly waiting to get my hands on the next installments.
