I really wanted to love this book. I liked the premise, but it's hard for me to enjoy a mystery/suspense novel when the lead character is two steps behind me in putting the pieces together. It's annoying to feel like I already know the book spoilers before the author reveals them. Plus, there were some parts of the book that just made no sense, or were at least pointless. (Like her going to a masked party, with anonymous attendees, to try to discover the identity of man.)
Even though Kathleen was a bit dense I still liked her. Most of the other characters were a bit bland, with the exception of C.J.. I'll probably try out the next book in the series in the hope that Kathleen has gained a few brain cells and developed a bit more self confidence.
