I really liked the first one of these....this one, not so much. Jaymie is a bit dull and boring in this one and seldom shows much backbone. It comes out every now & again, but not enough to keep her from disappearing into the woodwork, along with most of the other characters in this book, even though she's supposed to be the heroine. The previous book had a great deal more vintage kitchenware talk than this one, which is what drew me to the series in the first place. Not much of that this time around. I found myself skimming parts of this because of a bit of an overabundance of internal angst. I know I have the next one on order, but if it's not a step up from this one I won't read past that.
