First for me in this series (which I won’t seek out, but will read if I run across more at used book sales). Every main character needs a “thing” and this one’s is smoking. Seriously? I’m supposed to feel a bond with her? Not happening. But the writing wasn’t bad and the characters aren’t too cartoonish. Of modest interest were the decorating tips at the back of the book.
