No, not Bobby — although he is the one who found this book among the sack of categories my sister brought up from my dad’s house yesterday (also a Susan Napier, THE MISTRESS DECEPTION — reviewed here by Rosario — which I really enjoyed, and a Vicki Lewis Thompson Blaze that I haven’t read before.)

He brought it in and said, “How is it that this book doesn’t top everyone’s Best Ever– I Couldn’t Wait To Grab This Off The Shelf! list?”

I dunno, Bobby. Why do you think that is?
