I like Anne Perry’s plots and settings, but get really annoyed by how repetitive they become the further along in the series you read. the books are also internally repetitive. These would be Great books for people who take a month of “15 minutes before sleep” reading to complete a book and need the odd review, but deadly boring for people who read books at a handful of sittings.

I really like the way she writes but these books are so similar that it seems a waste of money to read them. The characters change little from book to book and the relationships between the main character and her husband and her family is so wooden that I want to shake the book to wake these characters up!

This was my first Anne Perry novel and it might be my last. It was pleasant enough but with the hundreds of books id like to read, I doubt that i will spend my precious little time on another of these.

It was more a commentary on proper upperclass behavior than it was a murder mystery. Also it ended too abruptly and wrapped up in two pages. ( )
