My Thoughts I've myself just read some of the existing ''reviews'' on this book, and both agree and disagree with many of them.

Many reviewers complained here, that the characters here, in The Jewels of Paradise, were not at all as well fleshed out. Impossible to do in one book, as compared to a series of 20 or so. I kept on, finally getting into the rhythm, and then becoming ''positively hooked'' into the overall back-story. True, DL took liberties, like the so often complained of: Caterina not setting up a simple additional Gmail account.

However, If she had done this simple thing, the over-all plot line of the story-- certainly ''would not have worked''. I to am also very annoyed by DL's often used italics in comments in Italian. As for this book '''there are those in several other languages''', with no glossary to aid the reader in what their meaning's are.

That alone would help to ''draw in the reader '', further into the plotline.. I'm not one to read with a device at my fingertips, so I can look up the meanings of a foreign language phases.

Case in point, Caterina's last word in the book in ''Russian''!!! In total, I quite liked Caterina, as well as some of the other characters But at the same time I found her a bit dense. I soon became ''very involved'' in the story, finding parts of it quite ''gripping''.

True, the heroine had been mislead with how long her employment would last, and was trusting of one she later came to distrust.

In the end, I just can't believe that Caterina, as a living, breathing, well educated woman, would have herself, ended the story as ''abruptly'' as Donna Leon did.

This is one I will not recommend to my friend, also a Donna Leon loving reader. At the same time, I think Caterina has potential, overall, to be written of again. I really didn't enjoy all the minute detail of 18th Century musical gossip and politics I liked the protagonist, but her supporting characters felt cartoonish and flat, not fully developed.

I found myself missing the Brunetti insightgulness. This one just seemed like the outline for a novel rather than the finished product. Brunetti's Cookbook. Willful Behavior. Doctored Evidence. A Commissario Guido Brunetti Mystery. Also available as: Death in a Strange Country.
