Read in May, 2012

I won this book through Goodreads First Reads, and I was pretty excited about it. I LOVE the Maisie Dobbs books, so I was hoping for something just as good. Wrong. Maybe it's the fact that I haven't read this series from the beginning, but it took me a long time to get into this book. There were loads of characters that I had trouble keeping up with, and Dandy just plain got on my nerves. She's pretty dense for a detective. Several characters had to spell out something that she should have deduced herself, had she been any good at what she does! And those darn "niggling" thoughts! Those drove me mad! The plot was thin and was kept going merely because there was a book to finish. I was really hoping for a great new mystery series to work through this summer, but sadly, this one won't be it.
