This was well-written. I have to say that because lately, I've come across so many that are not, which disturbs me. When I read for pleasure, I don't want to be jarred from the story by errors and typos. I just want to read and enjoy. No jarring in this book! Kudos to the writer and editors.

The pace was good, and I enjoyed the characters, especially when the women got together to dish. I would have liked more background on the crazy lady, but she was drawn well enough.

Not a spoiler, as it's mentioned in the blurb: The moment when Hui finds out Lan is a man, not a woman, could have used a little more depth. Hui accepted the situation too readily, all things considered. Since this was an important scene in the story, a little dwelling upon would have been good. :)

A nice, entertaining read. I'll check out more of this author's books based on how good this one was.
