The writing is lively and vivid, which engages the reader and enhances the dynamic characters. There is diversity and variety in the characters, some of whom are more complex than others. Each with their own strengths and flaws, the main characters are both highly individual and very complementary of each other as a group. One thing I really appreciated while reading is the way in which the author showed a character who had been perceived as a hindrance to be an asset, initiating new awareness and appreciation among the others. In this, the author subtly and cleverly teaches the reader a lesson about their own willingness to be positioned by the opinions of others and to allow that to influence our own acceptance and tolerance.
The plot is interesting, balancing the well-developed mystery and some sombre moments with some lighter moments of humour and irony.
I very much enjoyed this story. It works well as a standalone, but it also makes me keen to read the rest of the author’s books set in this world.
The action is brisk, as you’d expect in a shorter book, and the author shows a good sense of humor in the dialogue. His portrayal of the creatures encountered by the sisters is a nice twist on the “monsters are people, too” idea.
The only things I wished were different about the book is that, one, the ending was a little abrupt. The villain needed to be a little more evil and diabolical for my tastes. I would also like to have seen Abigail’s character be even more pretentious and high-toned. Finally, there wasn’t much character growth involved. Maybe that’s a bit much to ask in a story of this length, but I was hoping for some signs of this besides just realizing not every non-human is evil.
Those are pretty small issues, however, compared to the qualities of the book. If you enjoy stories that move along, have some action, and feature female lead characters, this one should appeal to you. I’m scoring it 4 stars and will probably try others by this author in the future.
The youngest Slaughter sister is on her own for a week - and the matchmaker brings a prospective husband by. She's also working a new case all by herself in her sisters' absence.
Prospective husband helps. There's chemistry. Enjoyable writing.
And then the ending... cheats.
