High hopes dashed!
I was looking forward to this book with its Shaker background, but I was so disappointed! It was so predictable. From the moment you meet the victim and the killer, you just know what will happen. Again, I think Ms. Albert is dumbing down her stories and I don't know why. I have one left loaded in my NOOK and I don't know if I will even read it. It is too bad because I have bought all of the China books. It is like looking at an old friend who had changed and not for the better. You have to wonder why...Was this review helpful?

What a disappointment
I have loved China Bayles and Susan Wittig Albert since day one, however this book just lost me. It takes palce at a Shaker Village in Kentucky. The first chapter is written as though China is talking to you and then every other chapter is from the viewpoint of a Shaker many years past. The plot was boring and the characters were as well. I missed the folks in Pecan Springs. It was a hard book to read, normally I can read this series in a day because it keeps my attention. This book in the series was one I forced myself to finish just to be able to say I read it. It was a major disappointment and I am glad I bought the paperback instead of wasting money on the hardcover. I'm sorry Mrs. Albert, but, this book wasn't your finest.Was this review helpful?
