] By the way has anyone else, besides myslef, read it? If so did you enjoy it?
Hey :) I got this from the library a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it!! a good mystery and loved all the references to the novels! also I'm glad to have read the tomlin bio before reading this.. as it helped me to tell the fact from the fiction a bit better! I'm sure if I would have read it without reading the bio, I wouldn't have believed she was momentarily engaged.. and other things they refer too ;) I'm sure I would have counted it all fiction! ;) I must say when I first heard the idea of JA in a mystery with HER as the super sleuth, well I thought the idea abspurd! but really it's pulled off very well!
I look forward to reading more! and only find myself sighing a bit when I realize that she'll never end up with one of the dashing young hero's in the end, like the heroines in her novels do! :'(
