more focus, miss mori

I'm a cinematic addict but I like books, too.

Kiss of Death (Scarlett Wakefield Series)

Kiss of Death - Lauren Henderson Decent, tight plot observant enough to make great points about British aristocracy (in my humble and likely misinformed opinion, anyway) but not self-aware enough to make any point a subtle one. Also it starts to get annoying when descriptions of the characters' personalities go downhill from class struggle backstory study to depending on physical characteristics to make a point.

Like, one moment Scarlett talks about how her looks mark her as a Wakefield and thus doomed to her family legacy, which was definitely a valid point... and then she talks about how her aunt doesn't look like a Wakefield and thus is so horrible and inheritance-jealous and she wears orthopedic shoes, too, MAJOR UGH! Ticked me off.
