This book starts out with the beginning of an excellent mystery, but quickly bogs down to pages and pages and pages of Chandler ruminating about why he is so attracted to Millicent, and Millicent determined not to fall for Chandler. This book is only slightly more engrossing than reciting to oneself, "He loves me. He loves me not," for hours on end. I was bored and started skimming almost immediately. By the time the author got back to the plot, I could care less about the resolution.
I have read other books by this author, and it is more of the same. Ms. Grey is excellent at devising plots that intrigue, but obviously incapable of fleshing out her ideas. This book, and all the books I have read by this author, is like a 4th grade reader, and then, disconcertingly, a sex scene is thrown in. Next comes a 4-5 page solving of the mystery, then a chapter on getting the couple together. The end. If one likes simple to the extreme, this is your book. I always come away from Ms. Grey's books feeling cheated and wondering why she has not developed as a writer.
I finished the book simply because I only had a chapter or two left but the book was spoilt for me after that.
