As a big fan of KH Bishop Trilogies, I was curious to read some of her earlier work. The only thing I can say is, that it's a good thing this book wasn't my first experience with the author or I would have avoided her afterwards.
The three plots were directed by women with "irrational fears or terrors" and besotted head-strong men who are determined to win over the swooning maidens. The "witty dialogue" could very well put you in a sugar coma.
So buyer beware, this is no Bishop trilogy or even an Amanda, or a Finding Laura (which aren't as good as the Bishop Books but show HUGE improvements in plot development). This is the publisher trying to make money off the author's recent success by republishing stories that were probably valiant efforts in the past but just don't make the grade today.
If nothing else, if you insist on reading it, it will give you an idea on how hard KH has worked to improve her craft. Which I truly appreciate! :)
