The Mystery of Mercy Close

The Mystery of Mercy Close - Marian Keyes 3.5 stars

Marian Keyes has a real gift for character voice. Helen isn't my favourite of her characters, but she certainly is amusing and kept me very entertained for the short time it took to read this. Yes - short time, even though the book is actually fairly hefty in hardback, but it's simple and delightful to read and that makes the time go fast.

Not her best work, perhaps, but still great nonetheless.
