Never read any of her books, obviously not a good one to start with. by ladyofflame
As this book was published six years ago in 2009 it might be an idea to update your first paragraph which reads "waiting with baited breath for her latest book". I've read all her books and thought she had a new one out I'd missed until I googled it! I agree that the author's previous books are much better than her more recent offerings though - she's most definitely gone off the boil. Her books are rather poorly written nowadays and so very repetitive - she's just churning them out without doing the hard work that went into her early books. PS Welcome to Ciao. by Bollinger28
