Entertainingly frivolous. Freya North’s characters are interchangable up to a point. After that point they’re good but the interchangable bit could use some added variety. Maybe it’s just because these aren’t my usual style of book.

Sometimes I read books and think: perhaps I won’t admit to this one on my website. I wonder if I could just put my thoughts onto the books page and bypass the weblog page. But there’s a dishonesty in that. It’d be like sneaking the News of the World inside the Times. Not that there is anything deeply intellectual about any of the books I read (or the Times) but sometimes pure fun is what you need. And this is fun.
