I am going to end up reading all of these this week, I can tell, my public library making them all instantly available to my tablet. Ta, L. Feb 04, Andree rated it liked it Shelves: Default 3 stars. Found a copy of this, and it fulfills a Reading Challenge prompt, so I figured I'd give it a try.
I think I need to resign myself to being an outlier when it comes to this series. I grant that I would never be adventurous enough to go on a mysterious vacation just for the chance to meet up with a thief I'd met a few times and quite liked I would be a terrible heroine in a suspense novel - I'm far too risk-averse ; however, if I ever did decide to travel to another country Default 3 stars. I grant that I would never be adventurous enough to go on a mysterious vacation just for the chance to meet up with a thief I'd met a few times and quite liked I would be a terrible heroine in a suspense novel - I'm far too risk-averse ; however, if I ever did decide to travel to another country to clandestinely meet up with a gentleman criminal, I'd like to think that I'd at least have the good sense not to call out to him by name or at least well known alias while he was in disguise at a crowded airport.
Bad sign that one chapter in I was already shaking my head at Vicky. I mean, she's certainly self-sufficient and brave and occasionally entertaining, but sometimes, just really? This whole book is essentially view spoiler [one big kidnapping plot.

I grant you, it is one of the better types of kidnapping plots, wherein the hero and heroine get kidnapped together and so have to work together to escape. Also, I generally give kidnapping plots a bit of a pass when characters have occupations that make kidnappings more likely, but it still took up a bigger percentage of the book than is my general preference. I have very low tolerance for any combination of "I am not telling you this for your own safety" or "I shall tell you later at a better time," in scheme-related narratives.
I have heard that Sir John and Vicky are fun. I might come to that conclusion myself if they were ever allowed to interact with each other for longer than a half a page when not in mortal peril. Schmidt was the best part of this for me. View all 4 comments. This may be my favorite of the Vicky Bliss stories.
It's that great, almost old-fashioned combo of mystery, adventure and romance, though it's very light on the romance. Peters generally manages a bit of humor, too which is always welcome.
