Cocaine Blues by Kerry Greenwood

 

DNF @ 44%

At first I was really into this book but it's a bit too preciously written for the dark subject matter and Phryne feels like a Mary Sue. Endless pages of fashion porn and people talking about how hot/perfect/charming Phryne is, and I began rolling my eyes. The writing is good and I think if you like cozy, escapist mysteries, you'll enjoy this, but the TV show is a lot better IMO, so maybe it was a mistake to watch that first.

2 out of 5 stars
