Waiting for Wednesday (Frieda Klein, #3)

Third in a series which I’m guessing will stretch to seven books. I’m also presuming that a particular plot line from the first book will surface in all the books and come to a head later in the series. I think that’s a good thing though this story had seemingly very little to do with that. Having given the first book three stars and the second one five stars I’ll put this somewhere in the middle. I enjoyed the second half of the book a lot more than the first as it seemed to be very slow to get off the ground. I’m bemused by the fact that the central character seems to maintain a long list of friends who look out for her whilst she is generally an appalling friend to them: I was going to say that you can get away with that in fiction, but then I realised real life works that way round too sometimes.

Entertaining, I find myself quite liking most of the ongoing cast apart from Frieda, and I’ll be back for the next installment, not something I’d be rushing out to recommend to anyone though.
