    Disappointing Follow-Up Novel

    I was so looking forward to reading 'The Grand Tour' because I really loved the first book (Sorcery and Cecelia). But this time, the format and story was not as defined as before. What I didn't like in 'The Grand Tour' was that in the Kate portion of the story we got to see a little of her romance with Thomas, but nothing in the Cecy part. It was such a disparate difference. I suppose it could be reasoned that the personalities are different and what they write about reflect this but come one, Cecy is on her honeymoon, couldn't she have written one brief romantic interlude between herself and James? Also, the mystery this time was so convuluted, I liked the simplier professor Hillary tale from 'Sorcery and Cecelia.' 'The Grand Tour,' left me confused and not really caring to find out what the big mystery was about, it almost seemed a little forced. It will be interesting to see if they write a third book in this series. They did leave the door open. I just hope they go back to the easy flow and rhythm they had with 'Sorcery and Cecelia.'

    Slow moving

    This book is the sequal to Sorcery and Cecelia or the Magic Chocolate Pot. While I enjoyed that book very much, the sequal is slow and boring.
