My Thoughts On The Book:  I am a big fan of Julie Klassen and I loved how she swept me away to Cornwall.  I loved the mystery in this story and really thought at first that I knew exactly who  the trickster was, but later I began to wonder if I was right with my judgement call.  I was shocked at the end when I realized how wrong I was.  Klassen's characters are well-developed and easy to relate to. This is a marvelous story! Julie Klassen is a superb writer that knows how to catch you from the beginning and hold on to you until the very last page. Once I began reading I could not put the book down.  There was just enough mystery and suspense coupled with  twists and turns that kept me guessing throughout the entire story. A great read!
