    One thought on “Rotten Apples”

    1. BEWARE:I DON"T FLAG SPOILERS. BUT THEN I DON'T PUT MY MY REVIEWS ON ANY FEED.I myself prefer Cooper's Trish Maguire to her Willow King. But I'll read any Cooper book I can get my hands on. The writer is so sensitive to nuance - of character, of language.Though I'm not keen on how Cooper titles her King novels, I am starting to get the gist. It's usually adjective + noun that refers to a food or growing thing. (e.g Sour Grapes, Bitter Herbs). The titles are, to me, more superficial or trite than [...]

    2. story line wasn't bad and the author knows her craft as writer. unfortunately her tastes are very specific. this book faced up to every cliche in the genre of pretty-smart-girl-in-a-man's-world mysteries and in the genre of daydream-of-life-in-a-quirky-but-immaculately-tasteful-mews-home romance. and lost.

    3. A fun cozy mystery concerning a tax scandal, civil servant unrest and a mystery shooting.Gentle and interesting story, my first by this author. I will read more but this one lacked any addictive turn paging and was relaxed and a smooth steady adventure.

    4. Willow King is mystery solver, civil servant in England, writes romances. Checks into a tax audit of an art historian who committed suicide.Pretty good.
