    1. Great book!!!I've been reading Sarah Woodbury's books for about a year now. The stories are always amazing. The cliffhanger on this one makes you want to fast forward time til the next book is released.

    2. I do love the way that things that happen in one book have an effect in another, and so the characters become more and more real. The relationships between King Owain and his sons and between Hywel and Rhun themselves develop here, and it is interesting to see more of Rhun this time.The music festival is an interesting part of the story, and the tangled web of both Welsh and English politics again provides a fascinating backdrop to what at first appears to be a fairly straightforward death of a [...]

    3. I've enjoyed this whole series so far, not least because Gwen and Gareth are very likeable characters and it's interesting to read how their lives progress. But out of them all, this one feels a bit unfinished, they solve the process of the murder but it somehow feels that the depths of the motive have not yet been plumbed. I'm hoping that's because there's going to be a sequel which will reveal more. This is also the first one in which I've felt some sympathy for the 'body' and I would have lik [...]

    4. Look, some of the plotholes in this one were big enough to drive a truck through, and the writing remains nothing to get excited about, but as a journey through the worlds of the middle classes and the poor, this book holds enough interest to make it worthwhile. Another key strength is the background, but constant, understanding of how Gwen's relative freedoms are further curtailed by children.I can't defend the plot though.

    5. I can't get enough of Gareth and GwenThe Gareth and Gwen stories just keep getting better and better. Before I was even done reading this book, I was looking forward to the next one. It is written so that I feel as though the story is being told to me by a friend.

    6. Must admit. Up at this hour due to cough. But nice to have something good to read to keep me company.
