it was ok
bookshelves: nook, second-chances
Read from May 11 to 21, 2011

I tried reading this one a year ago, but could not connect with the story. I gave it a second chance after it was offered as a nook deal and found that I was able to get into the story, but it was a long, slow start. I finally connected with the characters about 400 pages in... I'm debating whether to give the second book a try. The book sets up several story lines, but doesn't resolve any of them. Might be a good idea to wait for the series to end before reading it.

However, there were only so many times I could read about Diana's panic attacks, wine, and vague threats before giving up."
