This was a rather long read, and though it took a while to finish the book, it was still enjoyable. It took me a while to get invested in the story, but once I did, it seemed to flow quicker. This is an easy read and a well written mystery. I assumed I knew who the murderer was. And I was glad my assumption proved true. When the culprit was revealed though, it was interesting to see the dramatic behavior on their part as well as the individual’s excuses.
I enjoyed the cryptic crossword hints in solving Fen’s fiancé’s messages and the murders. I enjoyed getting to know Fen and James. Interesting side characters with varied personalities.
