You have to be in the frame of mind to tolerate the annoying speech patterns and vocabulary of the main character to even bother getting through this book. And a tolerance for nonsence, which is supposed to be a comment on how shallow Nancy is, how shallow her role in society and to break through the preconceptions she holds. My tolerance is about zero, so I hated this book.

Writing under a pseudonym, Marta Acosta (of the Casa Dracula novels) delivers another funny novel... one without vampires though Milagro does make several appearances. Nancy Carrington-Chambers is spends so much time trying to make things perfect that she doesn't see the curveballs coming at her. Her attempts to deal are both heartwarming and hilarious. Thought I have to wonder about about her dense-ness concerning Derek.
