I wanted to like it more!
am 5. Juni 1999
I'm a huge SEP fan from the beginning of her career, but there was something about this book that left me lukewarm. I've loved all of her books. I especially loved the depth of her earlier books because you could always count on her to make you laugh and break your heart in the same book. (I actually enjoyed the more serious DREAM A LITTLE DREAM.) I understand her shift to "lighter fare" since that's what's selling right now, but LADY began to feel very formulaic in its approach. The book did get better toward the end, especially with the cameos from Dallie and Francesca from FANCY PANTS, but overall, it made me sigh. I hope this isn't the case of an editorial staff encouraging an author to write the same book over and over to be successful because that would be a tragedy in SEP's brilliantly talented case.
