    1. i was pretty excited to read this 2nd Virginia Coffman novel as I adored Moura, my firstever was sadly disappointed. The writing was cryptic and confusing in places, and this was definitely not a gothic suspense novel as Moura was, and as I am sure most of Coffman's books are as she is known for them. Perhaps that is why this one is sub-titled "A Novel" any event, the only mystery in this book was which brother the heroine would end up with, which one was the "good" and which was the "bad" one, [...]


    2. I basically read this because my name is in the title but it had topics surprisingly close to my own life (A Devon named after England, theatre/arts, and Boston) however it ended up not have much to it. A quick easy read though which is always nice.
