Ms Enoch's ability to grab the reader from the first page and sink them into the story until nothing matters but finding out what is going to happen next makes this book lots of fun to read. It's the believability factor that keeps it from rating much higher. Some of the situations [the "kidnapping" as a perfect example], however funny, were a little over the top, even the sexual aspect didn't quite make muster in this area.
