From the Charred Remains

From the Charred Remains - Susanna Calkins 4.5 stars...I've read alot of the reviews and I really just think that some people just take everything way too seriously. I saw alot of people were criticizing the historical accuracy etc. etc. To me, fiction means it's not true so the authors can take whatever liberties they choose. If readers want complete historical accuracy then they need to stick with a non-fiction book!!! Anyways, I liked the book. I read to escape and for fun, not to nit- pick every little historical detail. The mystery was complex enough for me. The characters were likeable and there wasn't alot of redundancy in the writing which are the few things I can't tolerate. It was just really well written I thought and Im looking forward to the next one....
