I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
This book was recommended to my by a friend who hasn't yet steered me wrong, but as I read the first part of this book I'll admit I thought "well, there's a first time for everything". The constant beatings got to be a bit much, and for someone so intelligent, she seemed to rush into potentially dangerous situations with little or no fore thought.
But as we got to the second half of the book, things got interesting and I can see why this series is a keeper. The residents of Glass House are all interesting and likeable. The action at the end held my attention until the end. The hints of romance gave me something to look forward to. And I'm intrigued by the character of Amalie. All of these reasons will have me picking up the next book soon.
