It is quite literally a 'story' and not a very good one at that. I was so pleased when it came to an end.
Having read all of this series this one was a bit far fetched and the storyline much more predictable than its predecessors. I will still purchase the..Show More » next one though and look forward to a return to the usual excellent storylines and fuller characters.
