Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Book Vault (Clan Destine Fictions 2) (Kindle Edition)
My mistake, I was naive and should have looked inside before buying. I already knew this author from Chalet School connections and had enjoyed her school story and crime story set at a convention for collectors of children's books and so bought this book without checking more carefully. Two of the stories were the sort of thing I was expecting, one about stolen book collections and another about a story writing competition. These were quite simplistic (perhaps inevitably since they were short) but an okay read. The other short stories and the main longer story were all about, or largely included abusive sexual behaviours. I, personally, would classify this book as pornography. When I bought it there were no reviews and it was grouped with books by Evelyn Smith and Dorothea Moore which I found misleading( I did not notice reference to spanking then, although that is quite mild compared to other parts of the book). If you are happy to read books about e.g. a man 'disciplining' women, then you may well enjoy the varied crime stories with some interesting twists but I have written this review to help anyone who might be caught out like I was.
