The Question of Max (Kate Fansler Novels)

The Question of Max (A Kate Fansler Mystery #5) - Amanda Cross Interesting with an ironic twist. I liked it. Très littéraire. Even if the writers that are featured in the book are fictional you kinda want them not be so you can read Dorothy's novel or Cecily's last book. Kate Fansler is still one of the coolest heroine in the mystery genre I know. In this novel, we find Kate trying out "parenting" since her now quite grown up nephew Leo (first seen in the James Joyce Murders) on the verge of college, the moral dilemma of being true to oneself despite the cost. It also gives an unusual view of friendship. Not a flamboyant plot, more a solid and steady one.
