liked it

Blew right on through this, with relish. Can't wait for the next one, and it appears there will be at least 2 more which is wonderful.

I didn't like this quite as well as Sweetness, largely because the murder plot contained more than one red herring. I know real life is full of red herrings, but more than one in a murder plot is too much for me. It was just not as well-constructed as the last plot. I still enjoyed it, largely because the descriptions were so excellent. The puppet show in particular was extremely vividly described - I enjoyed it as much as if I had seen it myself.
