I have read most of Lesley Pearse's books and this is the first one to disappoint. The first half was great as usual, but then it became very wordy and most of the words were superfluous. I found myself skipping page after page of mundane, boring writing. I am even wondering if Lesley Pearse even wrote the second half of the book or whether she employed someone else to finish it. It certainly is completely different from her usual style.
