This is an engaging story with a little twist. The characters are well-developed, and spelling/punctuation errors are at a minimum, thankfully.
Somehow, none of the other reviewers seem to have noticed and commented on the one included graphically-described sexual encounter, so, for the benefit of potential readers who wish to avoid such things, I am doing so. It certainly wasn't hinted at in the book's description, which would have been appreciated, and its inclusion was certainly unexpected in a book which is part of a series entitled "The Vicarage Bench"! I guess that's what I get for reading series books out of order. :P
Also, for some reason, I originally thought Ellie Ward was a famous children's book writer, but later in the book, I realized she became wealthy writing "steamy" romances, instead (which certainly fits with the obligatory voyeuristic sex scene, however). The latter seems a bit unrealistic for someone who is under 30, to me...as does her considering Troy, a serious journalist, her writing mentor, in light of this particular career direction.
