Ruined a perfectly cozy romantic mystery by throwing up a sordid sex scene not even relevant to any of the sub plots, let alone the plot itself! When will the writers and publishers realise that MOST readers are thrown out of the fantasy world by this jarring insult to the intellectual stimulus of our imagination? Just a few words, a glance, or a hint will set our imaginative explorations going. That's why we read, to imagine, to extrapolate, to create. Why else do we enjoy Agatha Christie, J K Rowling, J R R Tolkien, and many more besides? Terry Odell, the story is good, but not great enough.
