I approached this book hesitantly because my most recent experience with a couple of her newest books. I absolutely detested those two books, not that the plots themselves were all that bad but the writing seemed very pedestrian.
I remember while I read those books that I was surprised at the level of writing because I didn't remember that from her other books.
This book reminded me of those previous ones. I absolutely fell in love with the characters even though Hoff bounces back and forth between characters and countries even. I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series.
