really liked it

Read in February, 2011

Full disclosure: I received this book in a goodreads giveaway.

I enjoyed this book more than the first 2 in the series (although I enjoyed them, too!). The characters and the plot were better developed, and I'd say the author is hitting her stride. These books aren't so much historical mysteries as mysteries that just so happen to be set during the Roman Empire, and that's a nice change from authors who write books about history first where the story seems to be only a secondary concern.
