    Alexa is a larger than life character with her fondness for vintage clothes Her quirky character is the force that keeps the narrative moving In that sense, the novel is a character driven mystery The motive for the murders and the murders themselves center on her The murders would not be nearly as interesting had they not revolved around Alexa and her work.There was quite a bit of halting romance woven throughout the narrative I felt that aspect of the novel was a bit of a distraction from Alexa is a larger than life character with her fondness for vintage clothes Her quirky character is the force that keeps the narrative moving In that sense, the novel is a character driven mystery The motive for the murders and the murders themselves center on her The murders would not be nearly as interesting had they not revolved around Alexa and her work.There was quite a bit of halting romance woven throughout the narrative I felt that aspect of the novel was a bit of a distraction from the mystery aspect Another reason to definitely describe this novel as character driven.The most interesting aspect of the novel for me was the discussion about Christians and th...

    I downloaded this book because it was called a Hartfield Mystery, and I wondered whether there was a Jane Austen connection There was, in that the heroine sometimes likes to dress up in Regency period costume The premise for the mystery is that as soon as the main character starts writing one of her mystery books, somebody, seemingly omnisciently, commits a crime in exactly the way described in her manuscript One thing I didn t like about the book is that sometimes the narrative seemed patchy I downloaded this book because it was called a Hartfield Mystery, and I wondered whether there was a Jane Austen connection There was, in that the heroine sometimes likes to dress up in Regency period costume The premise for the mystery is that as soon as the main character starts writing one of her mystery books, somebody, seemingly omnisciently, commits a crime in exactly the way described in her manuscript One thing I didn t like about the book is that sometimes the ...
