Caveat Emptor

Caveat Emptor - Ruth Downie This book sounds like it should be right up my alley. I love mysteries, I love historical fiction, I love cozies (and that's really what this series is). But this one just didn't grab me. I understand that the whole point of cozy mysteries is the "amateur" investigator, but Ruso just seemed too totally clueless for me. The last part of the book - after page 200! - was better. Ruso began to figure out what was going on and the story moved faster. I really don't have anything against the author or the series - the book is well written and the characters nicely drawn. I just didn't happen to enjoy the characters.
