Just finished. Not as wonderfully rereadable as "The Housewife and the Assassin," but engaging and fun. The mystery was a little too easy to solve.
---Previous review: Okay, FINE. I am officially reading too many darned books at the same darned time.
But here's the thing. I started this one and really thought I was going to just put it right back down again. It's just that every time I think the main character is *way* too annoying and I can't stand this a minute longer, she *admits* that she's annoying and that softens me up. Plus Trott keeps tossing me interesting bits of plot just when I think I know what's going on.
So, is Effie *really* going to go ahead and marry that guy when she knows very well she's already married to that other guy? A summer fling is one thing. But bigamy? After only a month of ever having been married at *all*? I'm impressed.
