Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Waistcoats & Weaponry (Finishing School Book The Third)

Waistcoats & Weaponry - Gail Carriger, Moira Quirk

The audio is excellent!  Moira Quirk nails all the characters and does a fantastic job overall. 1 star gets added for narration.

 

As to the book itself, I enjoyed it, but I kept waiting for the plot to begin; I kept thinking the crises that Sophronia and friends had to solve was just around the corner.  Then, a couple of days ago I looked down and realised there was only another hour or so left to the book and obviously, the plot crises had pretty much come and gone.  For this reason, this book felt a bit flat for me.

 

Still, I was never bored, and significant changes to the cast of characters Sophronia calls friends take place in this third book.  Everyone is choosing their paths and growing up.

 

Looking forward to the fourth book later this year.
