Book Review – Borrower of the Night

Borrower of the Night book coverBorrower of the Night by Elizabeth Peters

I’ve heard good things about Elizabeth Peters’ mysteries, but this one was just average. I feel that her characters are not very fleshed out. Her heroine, Vicky Bliss, is interesting enough but her insecurities about her looks get old after constant repeating and seems at odds with the fact that every single male character professes to want to marry her very soon after meeting. The mystery elements were fairly good although I think the plot gets bogged down in the middle with unnecessary drama. Overall, it was nothing special but an okay read.
