#3 Dido Hoare, antiquarian bookseller in London mystery, and the fourth book I've read in this series. I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed with this book. The bad guy and mystery was so very obvious and with each clue that came up, I was able to spot it as something that would be significant later. I really felt that Dido was totally stupidâthere was a bit of this in the last book I read, too, but this time it was very obvious to me and I kept wanting to smack her upside the head and say, âDon't be such a dumb-ass!â LOL I still like her, but the mystery really needed a bit of deeper plotting in order to not make it so obvious and not to make Dido seem so silly. I hate to say it, but this is a case of a great character with the storyline sort of falling down around her. In this book, Dido visits a client's home to appraise a book collection and ends up finding something potentially much more valuable than she anticipated, and of course ends up mixed up in things she'd rather not have encountered.
I've always liked books about books. The main character is a strong, smart and interesting, too. I'd like to have a coffee with her to talk about old books. Good series!! I liked this one a lot.
