Review by Melanielgarrett
Although the prose is strangely WYSIWYG, with almost no figurative language, and few signs that anything on the page was ever intended to achieve more than one thing at the same time, the plotting really kept this novel afloat. I saw on Amazon that other readers really liked the 'domestic' side of things, but to me this was a profound set back and gave the thing a mumlit feel in places.<br/><br/>But having said this, I read it in two sittings, and while I was reading, was eager to know what would happen. If it hadn't been for the tedium of domesticity and so many pointless descriptions of scenery and weather, I'd have happily given this a higher mark. I will definitely look for her next one, and suspect she will be a household name in years to come.
