I have a real soft spot for this series - slight spoiler
on 5 March 2012
I was feeling a bit poorly and a bit grumpy, so I bought this and read it in an afternoon, and it was just right. Lots of good, honest characters, sentimental in a good way without being saccharine, and a real heart thumper of a chase ending. I was relieved to read its an on-going series, I like the characters a lot.
The story revolves around Leigh's family this time, and the mystery that is Cara's father. Lots of twists and turns but not so much of a whodunit as trying to understand why he left and why he appears to be back .... If I have any criticism it's that Leigh's husband has become less of a character since they got married, I preferred him as a long suffering 'friend'. I find it less realistic he's a long suffering husband! But a minor quibble, the rest of the characters remain interesting, although now they've all found love how will the next book progress? DL Sayers kept Lord Peter happily married and investigating, I'm sure Edie Clare will figure it out too.
