Read in December, 2008

I had the hardest time getting into this book, and I can't quite place my finger on why. I guess one reason would be that I didn't really feel an emotional connection to the main character, Lizzie Martin. I didn't dislike her or anything, but I didn't really like her either. I liked the main male character, Ben Ross, quite a bit, however. I often found myself wishing that more of the book was written from his perspective. The mystery itself was engaging enough, even if it moved a bit slowly at times.

I thought having the story told via switching back and forth between the two main characters was interesting for the most part.

I have the second book in the Lizzie Martin series, I'm hoping I'll enjoy that one a bit more than this one.
