Twilight is Not Good for Maidens: A Holly Martin Mystery

Twilight Is Not Good for Maidens - Lou Allin 2.5 stars. A rather workaday crime novel which suffers from extremely slow first and middle sections and curiously cluttered writing. I wasn't engaged with any of the three main characters (Holly, Ann or Chipper) who seemed very priggish indeed. The best thing about it was Ashley who is a veritable breath of fresh air when she turns up and everyone hates her! Really it should be Ashley's book, not the dull Holly's, and that would have been better, perhaps.
