Can Faith and her partner Will Trent unravel Evelyn's past to find her before it is too late?


I enjoy your precis (is that the plural?) of books but would appreciate your giving them a personal touch by adding a 'how they rated' in your view. I know that is very much a matter of opinion but knowing a bit about your tastes I would find it helpful.

It's such a subjective thing that when I first started this blog I decided I wouldn't do a star rating. What I might do is start adding a categorization along the lines of: wouldn't recommend, enjoyed, would read again.

Would that help, or would you really prefer a star rating? If you are happy with categories how would you split them up or would those three suffice?

I think your "wouldn't recommend, enjoyed, would read again" would be a lot easier to cope with - and a lot more sensible - than my star rating which even I get confused by and find hard to do at times.

The three categories would be ideal and I can't think of any better ones.

Right, I'll start adding those categories to new posts -- I've got 33 posts to write before I catch up!
