Good-hearted, and very, very Anglo.Lenore's review sums up my thoughts perfectly, especially as relates to the dodgy particulars of the MC's sexuality, and the timidity of the sex scenes.I had my doubts about this one, no mistake. But before long artfully juxtaposed characters grew on me, even if the plot didn't, and by the end I found myself smirking and tut-tutting like an old lady. This was my first Merrow book. Her ability to craft a credible and appealing narrative voice is really very special. Hard Tail is a fun and easy read, and I'm looking forward to more from her.
