It’s so impossibly busy and filled with needless coincidences and silly drama that it becomes overwhelming by the end.
But now she’s getting engaged to this guy Braddon, figuring he’s too dull to be unfaithful, not knowing that he’s in love with his Micnight mistress. I liked this one– not as much as the first one in the series but it was enjoyable. Didn’t love it or even like it all that much by the end.
