“It does feature a retired heroine, so it might be targeted for another audience than me, but I can still appreciate the fact that there are authors out there who are writing books for this demographic.”
~ Under the Covers
I picked this book up because I’m a big fan of Lee Hollis’s other series but I really had no idea what this series was about. I have to say that it does have a very different vibe to the Hayley Powell series. It seems more targeted to older audiences and has different pacing as well. Once I was able to adjust, I found that I enjoyed the book.
As this is the first book I read in this particular series, it took me a while to get acquainted with Poppy’s character. But as always, Hollis does a good job of creating interesting characters. I found the secondary characters to be fun as well.
Usually I’m not big of things related to jury, so I do feel like I would have liked this book more if it had a different theme, but I am going to try going back to the first book in the series and trying that out as well just to see if I will continue the series. As I mentioned, it does feature a retired heroine, so it might be targeted for another audience than me, but I can still appreciate the fact that there are authors out there who are writing books for this demographic.
