It was fine, but I need to take a little break from Laura Childs. I feel like I could read a dozen books in this series, all set in Charleston SC, and never meet a black character. Plus all the reminiscence about the "genteel times" gone by, the plantation houses and the confederate societies...it gets a bit icky. Time for a MUCH needed break, which may be a long one.

His first novel, The Shroud of the Thwacker, was one of my favourite comedic novel of all time. This one was definitely lacking. It was really just okay. I guess I'll give him one more chance (if he has a third book).
