    1. Sarah Fortune is an absolutely delightful character. As so often, I’ve not discovered her in the right order, encountering her first in her most recent appearance in Cast the First Stone where she teams up with one of my top-fave kick-arse chicks Di Porteus to get hold of some hot art. Di’s idea of getting dressed is jeans & a tee till Sarah takes her shopping and shows her that clothes really are art we wear on our bodies & that they need us more than we need them & then as it h [...]

    4. It’s too bad Frances Fyfield books are no longer published in the US. I’m a very big fan, and this is the book I like best. Sarah Fortune is a delightful unpredictable character, with a past history of abuse and a big enough heart to forgive and give compassion to the worst of the worst. Fyfield provides a nice alternative to the good guy-bad guy dynamic. She turns it around so the bad guys find redemption through the quirky ministrations of Sarah (or, in her other books, a similar main char [...]

    5. I liked this book but not as good as some of her other book. Always a Fyfield fan, she writes great crime mysteries you can't put down. Always page turners. This one is no exception, but I have liked others more. The story lacked a little in this one for me. I did not get into it as much. But don't get me wrong. This was still a great book. This book has a good plot I just didn't enjoy it as much as some of her others. I like Sarah's character but again I like some of her other characters better [...]

    6. Summary (from the blurb): When Sarah Fortune, with her impeccable qualifications and chequered history, is sent to a small seaside town in Norfolk, she goes willingly.

But she soon discovers that guilt, insecurity, unrequited love and a touch of insanity afflict the Pardoes and the town, the legacy [...]

    7. This was my first Fyfield—an author recommended by a friend. Not sure I’ll follow it up. The novel’s full of invention, ingenious, elaborate—but to me it all felt a bit disconnected, jumping around. My imagination couldn’t keep up or hold it together. Perhaps I had the wrong expectations. In spite of the literary title, a quote from Robert Browning’s poem, Porphyria’s Lover, this isn’t really aiming to be literary fiction: it’s a; thriller, so a bit off my beat.

    8. The first time I read this book was when it came out. Recently I was in the mood for a good British author--time to re-read Fyfield! Maybe this isn't her strongest offering, but I enjoyed it and will be looking for more.

    9. Extremely well-plotted series of events unravel as Sarah Fortune uses her enviable talents to deal with a number of diverse and well-drawn characters. Thoroughly entertaining

    10. Good authoress but I don't like the style of her writing. Difficult to get into and overall not satisfying.

    11. Fyfield writes some excellent mystery/crime novels all with an unexpected twist. This one was particularly creepy.

    12. I generally enjoy books by this author, but this book felt somewhat disjointed to me. The characters seemed implausible to me, and the transitions were abrupt and confusing. I couldn't finish it.

    13. This book was ok. Set in England, second in a series , the characters seemed hard to like . Sarah had some serious issues and as the main thread of the story, it tainted everyone else.
