Still, after several weeks of increasingly depressing reads, I was all set for a nice cozy mystery. The problem was that this one was a little darker than I had hoped, opening with a young teenaged girl being bound and murdered in the church belfry. Eesh. But it wasn't quite tense enough to be a thriller either, so it was sort of in between "cozy" and "gruesome."
I found the book--particularly the first few chapters--to be needlessly confusing because the author kept switching perspectives from character to character. It took me much longer than it should have to even figure out who the star of the book was (like I said, I didn't remember much from the other book in the series that I had read).
