Read in July, 2011

My first book by this author. Enjoyed the story on the whole, but am frustrated (already) by the miss-communication between the lead character, Sweeney St. George, and what I perceive to be the hero, the police detective, Tim Quinn. You read about the building attraction between the two (which appears to have started in a previous book) and while you, the reader seems to understand what is transpiring, the two characters totally miss-read each other.

While I understand the miss-reading of each other's intentions, signals, etc., happens in real life, I find I have little patience for it in books or movies. I read to relax, escape, enjoy - I don't want these real life problems intruding on me. Not very open or patience, I know. That's just the way I am right now.

Since on the whole I enjoyed the story and the development of the characters, I will try to circle back and see if I enjoy the characters in the beginning (If Tim Quinn is event there - I don't even know).
