This is not the type of book I normally read. I've tried a few mysteries in recent years, and can rarely get past the first couple of chapters. This book drew me in quickly and I enjoyed it to the end.

While I didn't really care who the murderer was, I was curious to see what was beyond Jane's kitchen (and I wasn't disappointed). I loved the setting, and many of the characters. I really liked the descriptions of the art and the archery.

A few things annoyed me - while I'm always pleased to see gay characters, I found them to be a bit too stereotypical. I did not understand the young agent at all - I hope she gets better fleshed out in later books (assuming she's a recurring character. If she's not, I don't know why she was there at all).

Overall, it was a quick read that kept me engaged.
