Dollycas’s Thoughts

I broke my rule and accepted the offer from the author to review this book without reading the first book in the series and this time that really hurt.

La storia è buona ed interessante, anche se ho capito ben presto quali fossero i colpevoli. Il problema è come è raccontata: più volte ho avuto l'impressione che fosse saltato un passaggio logico, per così dire. Nonostante tutto credo che continuerò a leggere questa serie, anche perché ogni volta imparo qualcosa di più sulla storia americana, di cui so davvero poco, se non nulla.

This book is in a series called "First Ladies White House Dollhouse Shop" and I just love it. The plot in every books is so different and she always involves her grandma which I love. This is a well written and fun book to read and I look forward to reading another. Barbara hit a home run with this book!
