    What a dissapointment. After two good volumes, Miles totally loses all sense of pace and organization in this third installment. Although all of the characters are still interestingly explored, much about their motivation is still left unexplained. This weakness is fatal (no pun . . . yadda yadda) when attempting to explain the impetus behind an international murder plot. An Italian singer has arrived in Bracebridge just when an unknown traveler is found dead on the Worcester road. Is there a connection? Does Miles actually explain the connection? Do we care?

    I thought the foppish opera singer was really fun, and a nice foil to the logic and stoicism of Charlotte and Richard. I find this series so engaging!

    a bit far-fetched and very slow

    This is the third in a series--a spunky widow solves crime in 1760s New England. The plots are a little convoluted, and yet more transparent than I like my mysteries to be. Decent beach reading.

    Still enjoyable characters and setting, but the plot is a muddled mess.
