    I read this because I had the impression that Ms Fraser was a good author This has got to,be the most boring book I have read in the last five years Although it is termed a mystery, I fail to comprehend why The only thing mysterious about this book is why I continued to read it after I started it I guess I expected it to have some twists and turns which would make it interesting It did not.

  6. says:

    I thought this was OK The style is hard to describe, but for a purported mystery I didn t find it particularly compelling It probably didn t help that I started it before a vacation and read three plus books before getting back to it The characterization was pretty good though, as I find with so many British authors, the American characters dialogue was not completely natural.

  7. says:

    A cute mystery centered on all the fuss and feathers surrounding a Royal Wedding Jemima Shore is to be a guest commentator for an American TV network She discovers, too late, that there is a very real danger to the bride, a real life princess.

  8. says:

    I really enjoy Fraser s writing, particularly her biographies I ve read two Jemima Shore mysteries now, and I d like to getof them.

  9. says:

    This book has been lurking on my TBR pile for way too long Time to read it and move it along.
