The Dark Angel (Ruth Galloway, #10)

I’m definitely back into enjoying this series after swearing I was giving up on it a few books back. I’m making no bones about the fact that I’m here for the ongoing soap opera of the central characters and that there are things that annoy me, but overall I really enjoy reading these anyway. The mystery plot here doesn’t really get going for a good long time, and even when it does it’s a bit thin really, but that is all fine by me as well. I have an ongoing problem with Ruth continually putting herself down (though I’ll acknowledge that it’s perfectly realistic for her to do so) and in this book I really noticed how time was taken to show her from other characters points of view where she came over as wise, competent and sexy. I thought that was really well done and nice to see.
