I really like this book. It's a different style of writing where the author makes "aside" comments like she was talking to you. I just finished her third book and am on the lookout for the rest. definitely a fun read!
I really liked this book, this series, this character. I've read the first two, have ordered the next 3 or 4. Gladdy Gold is a hoot! I want to be that feisty. I have a great picture of her, uh, mature gang of ladies on a stake-out or chasing the bad guys. This is a good FUN read!
I'd be interested to know what someone else thinks about this book. I thought it was great, very Sherlock-ian, for the first 250 pages. then it went into icky. Couldn't have been pirates? No Couldn't have been a plot against the government?. No Couldn't have been a political kidnapping? No Without giving anything away, I can say that I was really disappointed.
Loved this book. I wasn't familiar with the author so I didn't know what I'd be getting. Good story and just enough ??? to keep you interested. I've traveled southern CO in bad weather so I could totally relate to the setting. Just wish it was available in audio form for my friend who doesn't read book-books. Recommended!
This is a wonderful story. Small town Iowa. Lots of very real characters. It's a warm book. It's an "awwww" book. It sounds silly but I think it's a happy book. No blood. No bodies. No forensics. Just a warm and fuzzy story. How highly do I recommend this book? I'm keeping this one on my "forever" shelf and not putting it out for swap. I don't make higher recommendations than that!
Nope. Sorry. This one just didn't do it for me. Just TOO convoluted and too many story lines. A vintage clothing store. "Psychic" readings by wearing vintage clothing. Ghost in the store. And another mystery in the little town? Any of the story lines would have been good-just not all of them in one book.
Loved this book. Love the character. I'd read it years ago and just gave it a re-read. Absolutely fast-paced. Jane Whitefield is a guide. If you find out your boss is cooking the books and need to disappear, Jane is who you need to call. I'm exhausted when I read this series-in the front door, out the back door, up the stairs, down the stairs, into the airport as a blond, out of the airport as a brunette. Wrong way down the freeway exit. Whew!! Just a good, fast, fun read. Totally recommended!
London. 1853. Missing painting. Secrets and murder. And one of the best scenes ever describing a "toff" getting his comeuppance. You don't usually get murder and laugh-out-loud in one book but Charles Finch did it here. Highly recommended.
