A bit too simplistic for my tastes, and by the end I just felt rushed by the author. I had high hopes for Mrs. O'Hare at the start of the story, but she had lost me completely by the end.

I enjoyed this short story emensely. The twists and turns of this page turner kept my attention. Yet it was also a light enjoyable read in many ways that was not excessively dark. I was most impressed by the excellent writing skills of this author. So many books distract from the plot with poor sentence structure, contex related spelling errors etc. This was not the case in this book. Although the end was a bit unrealistic it also added a certain element of surprise unique to this story. It will not be forgotten any time soon!

This book was OK, not as enjoyable as Kate's other series. The protagonist was a bit whiney and felt sorry for herself a great deal. I also felt the 'relationship' with the mesmerist was arrived at too quickly. I don't think I will read any more of this series.

Enjoyable. The characters were fun, varied in character. Plot was engaging. A few nicely placed plot twists combined to make this. A fun read.

I only rate this book three stars because it just didn't have much excitement in it, and the romance was just very average, but I was surprised at who the murderer was, it turned out to be an interesting ending.
