yay, carlotta’s back :-)

i enjoyed this loads but i’m not sure how much of it was just ‘meeting up with an old friend’ syndrome. carlotta’s the same as ever, paolina’s growing up, roz never will grow up. the plot has all the not quite realistic tying together of unrelated threads that i’ve learnt to expect from linda barnes. but i didn’t realise that til the end, and that’s the idea after all. i know she does it but it fools me anew each time.
