I must admit that I was expecting more from this book. I found it to be ok. I think fans of [a:M.C. Beaton|1657638|M.C. Beaton|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1218288781p2/1657638.jpg]will enjoy this novel. It very much had that feeling to me. Now, I didn't read the first in the series (I have it on order from the library). Once I read that, I may reread this one (it is only 176 pages). If my opinion changes, so will my review!
