The High Season

The High Season by Judy Blundell is a smart summer read. The descriptive fast paced writing makes for entertainment plus. The story of Ruthie going through divorce, running a museum and having to rent out her dream house for the summer to make ends meet, is mostly a delight. Keeping track of the cast of characters can be exhausting. The rapid-fire dialogue loses its punch in the last third of the novel. Additionally, cynicism creeps into each character which makes for a generic sameness and emotional shallowness. But hey this is her first novel and Judy has a way with words so I say bravo!
