I found this story confusing. There was an initial murder, the story of which petered out about halfway through and then another, unconnected murder that was abruptly solved with little work on anyone's part but a lot of barely related emotional angst. And Felix's wife has to be one of the most unlikeable characters I have come across in a while - not evil, just narcissistic and unpleasant. Maybe it is intentional but it spoils things for me.

Another great book

It is my hope that Me Smart will be continuing this series . I have become interested in the fa.joy a


This unfortunately is the last of this series. I can only hope Ms. Smart will be continuing on with this interesting period of British life. I find the main principles well developed and hope this adventure will continue.

Excellent

Harriet Smith provides a true portrayal of her character's faults and merits making her books very realistic. I cannot eat until the next Northminster series is available!

Already waiting for the next one

I love the community of people that Ms. Smart has created, flaws and all or maybe especially because of their faults. I can hardly wait for the next one.

Another surprise ending

Excellent characters and a well written story make a successful book. The author always leads the reader to a wrong conclusion which adds to the enjoyment.

Not sure why I kept reading this series as I haven't liked the last couple. The plots are unnecessarily complicated and the characters unlikeable. Just couldn't finish this one.

I so hope there will be additional books to complete the lives of the characters in the boos. Thoroughly enjoyed reading them all.
