Book #30 - The Floating Girl

by Sujata Massey

4th Book in the Rei Shimura series

My Rating: 3/5

A couple of typos, and a minor clothing inconsistency were slightly distracting, but it was another fun, quick read that I finished on our short vacation. I haven't read a lot of mysteries (although I'm recently getting the urge to try some more) so I can't really compare it, but the mystery part seemed a little weak to me. But again, I stress, what do I know?! The best part of this series for me is definitely the Japanese setting. I also like how each book in the series deals with a different aspect of Japanese culture- this time it was manga, the previous book was about ikebana. The next one, which I'm sure I'll get to sooner rather than later, is about kimono. So for me, at least, it's a fun series that I plan to continue with.

  2. Hope you enjoy it. And you can let me know if I have no idea what I'm talking about with the mystery part.
