This is the second of the Adrien English mysteries and was just as enjoyable as the first.
I really like the character of Adrien, I like his voice, his inner musings, his sense of humour and his intelligence. I like that he has flaws and acknowledges them. I like that he's not perfect.
As for his erstwhile paramour, Jake... well... I disliked him a lot in this book. I hated the way he treated Adrien for the most part and I hated his snarky attitude. I had a very hard time seeing what Adrien sees in him aside from the outer package. I wanted to smack him all through the book.
The mystery was good. Interesting and kept me guessing all the way through. I do like the way little bits get solved and new questions get raised and for the most part, the whole thing hung together rather well. At least I didn't know the guilty party before the end of chapter three! *LOL*
So yep, a good mystery read!
