It's nice to be back with Ellie and Bentley,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Trouble With Harriet (Hardcover)
I quite enjoyed The Trouble With Harriet.
Dorothy Cannell has given us some new characters with very unique personalities. Some are good and some so annoying you wish Ellie would box their ears. And happily there are the ones we have come to know and love like Mrs. Malloy (still in her black taffeta and heels) and Freddy.
I did not give the book five stars because I felt the pace of the first half of the book was a bit slow. At page 156 I thought "now we're getting interesting"
However, as a tried and true Dorothy Cannell fan I was not disappointed. It is a fun book to read, Ellie is her charming and lovable self, and as always, Ben is a picture perfect husband.
This book also marks the return of kleptomaniac Aunt LuLu which adds even more English humor to the already amusing book.
I would have enjoyed a faster pace but all in all it was an enjoyable read.
