At times this book felt a little too much like an essay on Japanese culture, but then again, that's one of the reasons I love this series. The plot is well-crafted and suspenseful.
If you've discovered Sujata Massey's sleuth, Rei Shimura, a Californian living in Japan, you know what a fun read it is. If you haven't yet had the pleasure - you're in for a treat! One of those delightful books that you don't want to put down.
I like this series, the culture is always interesting, and the story itself is very good!
A nice, quiet little book. Well written and informative about Japan and the culture of flower arranging. Enjoyed it very much.
A Japanese-American woman living in modern Japan , running an antiques business and solving crime. The culture aspects of the story grabbed me more than the mystery. This is the 3rd book in the series and I haven't read the others. It might have helped.
I always look forward to a new Sujata Massey book.
The series just gets better and better.
Even better than the first book I read of this series.
