Started out okay but was downhill after the first chapter. I can generally read a book of this length in a day or so, but it took an entire week to finish it because I could only read a chapter at a time.

I so wanted to find a new author but finishing this book was a serious chore. The lead character is clueless and the constant attempt at romantic interest is adolescent at best. Truly more work than it was worth.

Nice and dark goings-ons. Enough confusion to keep it un-predictable. Definitely un-cozy!
