Not the best novel in this series, I'm afraid.
on 22 March 2015
Not my favourite novel in this series. I've read several of CM's novels and would say that, in general, I am a fan but she does not always sustain her series as well as other writers do. Ned is a sweet character in the other novels but this, his story, began to grate on me fairly quickly. There was altogether too much introspective anguish over 'control' which led to frustrating encounters with Kathleen. I found myself muttering 'Oh, for god's sake, just talk to her." so many times!!
