This story really moves. Virginia Davies, the main character is exactly that, a chracter. It starts out in a compeling manner and keeps going. If only I could be like her. My husband wants to meet the person she was modeled after. The story is great, lots of twists and great descriptions. I felt like I was there.Was this review helpful?

I originally thought this was a 'girls' novel. Boy was I wrong! The story is riviting. I didn't think the lead character could get into so many difficulties. She goes from one tight experience to another. Tension is broken up by some well placed humor. The mix of fact and fiction is done very well. You can't help chearing for the good guys and hiss at the villans. It is a fast pace mystery-action adventure that would make an outstanding movie. The publisher's editing could be a little better, but I've read books from the major houses that have some editing errors in them. It didn't distract from the suspence or enjoyment. Great book. I hope more of the Virginia Davies mysteries will be coming out soon.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book is billed as a mystery and in reality is a combination of mystery and adventure. A major difference between this book and others is the lead character. It's a spunky, intellegent woman with a lot of charm, charater and energy. I found the biggest problem with it was not being able to put it down. I hope other books with Virginia Davies will be published in the near future. Enjoyed the laed charater's wit. Story has a lot of fast paced action, romance and murder. I loved the settings. Good mix of facts and fiction.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
