Not to mention oodles of boys in kilts, run-ins with arch-nemesis Plum Saybourne who seems to have forgotten she got trumped in book three thanks to the return of her cohort Nadia, and plenty of mystery on the streets (and undergrounds) of Scotland.
This book was full of everything I have come to love about the Scarlett Wakefield series. The playful asides about fashion, life, love, and anything else pop culture are always fun but it's the British humor (humour? :D) that I appreciate most. In spite of every twist and turn and attempt on her life, Scarlett is always funny in her observations about those around her and her own inner thoughts. She is a firm personality that doesn't waver much and never edges toward the melodramatic.
The settings, while gorgeous in their own right, aren't left entirely up to our imaginations but beautifully laid out on the page. We discover a lot about history along with the rest of the plot of the book which was something I thoroughly enjoyed. It was more of the same, and the same is what I really loved about the Scarlett Wakefield series. I am very sad to know that Kiss of Death is the last.
Thank you to Ms. Henderson for producing such delicious young adult fare with nothing objectionable, as far as I'm concerned, and plenty of non-American flavor in the same vein as my favorite Britcoms and films. I will forever be a fan and will forever beg for a Scarlett Wakefield Book 5... 6... 7... 1,000. Especially if Plum gets her just desserts!
