A perfectly enjoyable little mystery!,
This review is from: Lord John and the Private Matter (Lord John Grey) (Mass Market Paperback)
Reading the other reviews here, I see that many readers are disappointed this book doesn't live up to the excellence of Gabaldon's Outlander series. I am unfamiliar with the Outlander books, so I approached Lord John's story with no preconceived notions of what to expect. What I got was a perfectly enjoyable, well-plotted little mystery with some wonderful characters and just a splash of history. Being a mystery fan, I loved it! No, this isn't an epic tale of. . . well, whatever the Outlander books are about. It's a light read, clever and fun, with intriguing and sympathetic characters. What more do you want?
