I’ve been a bad, bad Tales of the City reader. Here I am, posting late again, this time about More Tales of the City, the second book in the series. In my defense, I will say that I did actually read the book only a day or so late, but just haven’t had a chance to post. I’m hanging my head in shame right now, trust me.
So, when we left off, what we learned in the first book was that everyone has secrets. Here in the second book, many of those secrets have been revealed. The big one, of course, is Mrs. Madrigal’s, which began to come out into the open in the first book but is really explored here. Somehow, I remembered this revelation coming at the very end of the series, so I was quite surprised to see if take up so many pages here! Other than that, things pretty much keep shuffing along for the residents of 28 Barbary Lane, and I continue to find it hard to talk about them without spoiling anything for anyone. There’s a death, a life-threatening illness, a crazy crime ring, a romance, and more, but it always feels fun and never too far over the top.
Character I loved the most in this book: Brian (still)
Character I liked the least: Burke. He’s kind of a drip.
Who are your favorite and least favorite characters so far? Who do you hope we see more of in the next book?
