Susanna Appleton is as fresh and clever as in the first volume; in fact, I think she has grown more appealing over the years. In addition, the Scots setting provides some new and surprising quirks to historical law.

I did all those things, and I am still writing, although more slowly to accommodate the editing work that actually pays the bills. It was a good way to be paid for learning to write novels, but my true love has always been the mystery genre. I grew up in a house full of siblings, arguments, and books; more than half of those books were mysteries. I read all of these, horrifying my mother by asking, when I was eleven, 'What is this cognac they drink all the time?
I liked the novel of detection, the amateur sleuth, the comfortable confines where violence can be hidden, the placid surfaces with raging currents beneath them. Mine, I like to think, are semi-cozy.
There is violence, but it is not dwelt on in loving detail. There is humor, but that is not the focus. The characters, as in all good fiction, carry the story, but the story makes definite progress toward a satisfying resolution. That is one of the reasons why I love reading and writing mysteries. One reviewer once damned a book of mine because the ending was too tidy. Well, I like that tidy ending. As a child, I loved the books in which the characters, though tossed by turbulent action, ended up tucked into bed, snug and safe for the night.
