I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

Not good.

I very much liked the first book about Tom.

I very much liked Tom.


But this time around Tom was too much. He was over-drawn. Too charming, too cheery, too everything. Like the author tried too hard.


Phil and their relationship was totally uninteresting.


The "crime" part didn't make much sense for me - it was a cheap shot,

that in the end the most unlikely suspect was the culprit, and she was simply crazy. Well, this saves an author much time for good story construction.
