I loved Anne Bishop’s newest book Written in Red, and thought I’d try another of her books while I wait for the sequel to Written in Red. Wow! what a difference 15 years can make. Don’t get me wrong, it was still an engaging story, but Written in Red was so much better. There was a great deal of cruelty by the characters that perpetuated more cruelty, rather distressing. Spicyness level of 4 out of 5.
