I loved it. Nice progression of characters. Some background we did not know. Marino (the big ox) continues to heal. I wish Kay would see through that lump of a husband she has. He is about as interesting as library paste. Hope to see more Lucy in future books as she is one complex character. The book was everything I wanted. I am not a critic or an expert, just one of the reading public. But we buy the books not critics. I Believe Patricia is writing for us (her public) and does not worry about the others. Stated another way she is intellectually honest not a panderer.
