I have not yet finished the book but am almost there. I did not like it very much maybe because it is my first read of patricia's pen but I found her to be very distant as a writer. I think the plot is also a bit silly and am getting also confused with the amount of characters in the book.

eileen l gaudette-crowe I find that the number of characters enriches the book; each one deepens the flavor of the stock, so to speak. Having characters that reappear throughout the series gives it a continuity and richness that it would not otherwise have. I reread these books numerous times and never get bored because there is much more going on than a simple murder mystery.
Nicole Jappinen yeah at first i was like this was silly you have to pay attention i think its alright i really enjoy her books.
