's review

This cosy fantasy mystery was an easy read. I often find first person narrators too snarky or neurotic for my liking, but I liked this one's voice. The characters were distinctive and fun, the worldbuilding enjoyable, and the story flowed very well. I didn't even mind the romance! (If you've read my other reviews, you'll know I'm really not into romance...)

Although the actual mystery wasn't too difficult to work out, the clues were neatly placed. For my tastes, the climax was a tiny bit bogged down in explanation/reflection, but that's a very minor criticism.

Technically, the writing was fine. I noticed just one typo, and a few line breaks in odd places.

A well presented cosy mystery with a strong fantasy element.
