I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
I originally read the first in this series with some trepidation, but the characters kept me reading and the Aeslin mice stole my heart. That the plot was fun was just a bonus.
In this one though, the plot wasn't a bonus; it's what kept me reading through a setting that normally bores me (reality tv and dance competitions; a double whammy of yawn). The setting is, in fact, what kept this book on my TBR for so long instead of being devoured immediately upon receipt.
I have to say, I didn't see that ending coming. It was sort of awful, although everything moved so fast there wasn't much time to dwell on it.
So if that setting appeals, this book should be a huge winner. Likeable characters, a really good plot and the Aeslin mice. All hail the Aeslin mice!
