I Really Enjoyed This Book,
This review is from: Well Bred and Dead: A High Society Mystery (High Society Mystery Series) (Paperback)
It's so well-written with a fast, easy-to-read pace. And really, I liked the heroine, Paulie Cook. Sure, she is a rich socialite with quite a few annoying habits, but I'm sure the author created this character with some satire, some caricature, & quite a bit of fondness. After all, many women would dream of being a rich attractive independent woman dining at fancy restaurants & buying designers suits...if only for a week! And Pauline does have financial woes, hidden from her friends (of course, in that circle you have to put up appearances!) which gives it a sense of reality. The mystery is intriguing, & while sometimes it stretches credulity, the elegant writing makes one overlook that (except at the very end, it becomes a little too convoluted, that's why I gave 4 rather than 5 stars). Is it serious literature? Of course not, but a really enjoyable treat. I am looking forward to reading her next book.
