it was amazing
bookshelves: mystery

The Camelot Caper takes a kind of tongue-in-cheek approach to a lot of the old gothic novel clichés and yet still manages to remain a viable mystery. But, the plot would’ve been a bit bland if it didn’t have the two main characters it did.

Both Jess and David fit the plot and each other really well. It was also fun to see the heroine telling the hero not to faint instead of the other way around. Jess is intelligent and resourceful. And even though she’s in a different country and being pursued by two men she doesn’t flail around like a chicken with her head cut off.

David himself is a fantastic character. He’s an odd-ball gothic mystery writer who seems to be having the time of his life being involved in an actual mystery. He manages to keep the atmosphere light with his wit and enthusiasm. He also keeps Jess from sulking about her predicament like she tended to do in the first two chapters.
All around this is a great light-hearted mystery for any fans of the genre.
