    Thank you to NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for a chance to review this novel by Rhys Bowen I m sorry to say I was very disappointed in this novel It was very slow very little even happened until 75% of the was through the book I enjoyed the chance to read the book, but did not enjoy the outlandish story Bella Helen just was so very childish and unrealistic It was very nearly a DNF for me.
