Read in July, 2008

Meh. What an outset, and what a letdown. Thanks to modern publishing customs, even Dodd did indeed become bad, or lazy. I had feared as much - I'd not usually buy anything about "princesses" but Dodd had been different and good before. Now she does not even write (out) the letters that infuriate the villainous uncle, so narrow has her writing become. She tries to stick to the woman-loves-loving-when-not-overpowered but - but. Hero starts crochetting lace at one point, but that is also only told. It actually ends with the teaser of the next novel, and that other hero was intriguing, but that is the worst of tactics, the worst of the likes of Julia Quinn *sad at heart* another one down.
