Always Carry a Book!

I am a fantasy fan first and foremost! I will, however, read anything interesting as long as its not crime fiction. I never go anywhere without a book/ebook!

The Mystery of Mercy Close (Walsh Family, #5) - Marian Keyes I have to say i loved this one, probably my favourite of the Walsh series. Incredibly witty with a captivating storyline.
Even as Keyes delved into some of the more serious and real scenes, she kept the mood from becoming overly intense which i thought was very well done. The characters were great and i liked that we got a lot of depth out of Helen that we weren't aware of from the previous books.

I nearly gave it 3 stars simply because i thought at times some things said by characters were overly nasty and unnecessary, such as with Zeezah's sideburns and joking about her gender. Plus all the racial jibes which i'm not quite sure what to make of yet.
The reason it still gets 4 is simply because i got some much needed laughs out of the rest of the book which i'm grateful for.

4 stars
