Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers!
Whew! After all the book bloggy fun we had what with the Got Books? Event and everything, definitely needed a teensy break from heavier blogging.....and reading for that matter. Luckily the world of books, varied as it is, delivered and I had the pleasure of reading a light mystery filled with every girls dream. What's that? *listens* Yes, there are love interests. *listens* Yes, there is danger and risk too. But the real motivating factor for our lead character in this book.....SHOPPING...with a capital "S". Today's book of choice is....
Speaking of this character....I suppose the saying of "to know her is to love her" really applies to our female lead. At times, she is beyond ditsy (yes, I said ditsy....) and her lack of focus on anything but handbags, even when faced with a potentially deadly situation, would drive me up a wall at times. I mean I've read characters that were more mature that were a fraction of Haley's age, but better able to handle their world, their situations. However, as it turns out, that is simply a part of her charm. Once your understand her personality quirks, as naive as they make her at times, she verges on being quite endearing. I mean, how else would you read to a stories end when essentially it's a big shopping trip with a pit stop of murder thrown in on the side?
Until next time....happy reading!
