I got this book because Evil Edie is a Ruth Wind fan.
Before I start talking about the book, I’d like to say that the copy editor for the book sucked. Achellies’ heel? Kuala Lampur?
I liked the book well-enough, but I feel that the characters weren’t that great.
Luca’s motivation seems forced.
Sylvie’s a gemologist, which is all and well, but we don’t really get to find out how she thinks. We know what but I’d rather know how.
Paul…Sigh. Not that kind of sigh. It’s the He Could Have Been So Much More! kind of sigh.
This gets 6.5 out of 10–the 0.5 is for the little notes about gemology at the beginning of each chapter. I’m feeling generous today.
Oh and this is my entry for Angie’s TBR Challenge!
