It took a few pages (about 100!) to get into this book and like it but as the plot developed, I started liking the characters a bit more and the intrigue started making sense. Easy read and enjoyable. The main two characters I liked a lot.

best I have read in awhile. I was think cosy when I ordered it but it was so much more. I really liked it, look forward to the next.

Once again Diana Killian does not disappoint. This is a witty and fun read. The beginning of a series. I almost can't wait for wish list books to be available for this one. It is a quick read, but only because once started I didn't want to stop.
