It was so nice to get back into her life for a few days. I'd quite missed her and the dear Henry. I liked the new trio of friends she makes in this story. I also loved the bird-feeding image she created and the fact she squeezed in a good old British swear word in a sentence !!
I was a tad baffled by Pete's flight machinations and how he cancelled and re-purchased flights in order to skim money off a client. I just couldn't get my head around what he was trying to achieve.
There seemed to be too many formatting errors in this story and I am pretty sure I've referred to this in the past with her books in the digital format. I just checked and yes, I have made prior mention of the hyphenating issues especially in past reviews. Once more we had Mill-hone/Pen-sky/Bakers-field/Mar-fan's and Lin-ton. It's time someone paid better attention in the editing process for her books. Each time she wrote kidnapped it was spelled kidnaped which is a surprising mistake and there were apostrophe errors again, too.
The eulogy at the end that William read/compiled was wonderful, though it did make my eyes wet......The homeless are not lesser mortals.......well said. I really enjoyed these past few days catching up with old friends and I'll now need to eke out the final 2 books......
Sadly, Kinsey Millhone seems to have turned in to a tedious apologising door mat, instead of an interesting character. What is worst is some of this seems to be there purely to get the story to move along. Letting idiots be nasty to her and having her just taking it is very tedious.
I guess I won't be looking out for X, Y and Z.
I will keep reading the whole series, I started with A so will carry on, but this one seemed to be padded for no reason.
