Ms. Leigh (and Ms. Elliot) have enjoyed successes with this writing strategy of theirs, both writing books within the same series alternately. I suppose I have a bit of a bias because I enjoy Ms. Elliot's books more than I do Ms. Leigh's.
Having said that, this book was a good, quick read, nothing that taxed my brain too much. I wish they would (both) stop writing about any romantic aspects because the feeling between the characters doesn't support the matches. There are no sparks, no interesting dialogue, no sly smile waiting to emerge. We're just told that they're now dating. Big Woo.
Stick to the mystery alone or hone your skills and make this a true romantic mystery. Just saying.
