Fun, interesting characters, with some plot problems,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Gamble (Mass Market Paperback)
Thoroughly enjoyed the book once I got past the author's problems with genre. Ms. Wolf is a marvelous writer, but her characters behave more like 1990's sophisticates rather than 18th century. Excellent historical research and settings. Minor plot problem (when the author has her main character do something dishonest, then continues to beat the reader over the head that the character really is scrupulously honest....) but once you get past that it is well worth reading!
