See How They Run is the s

See How They Run is the second book in the Embassy Row series. I wasn't too impressed with the first one, so I'm not sure why I picked this one up. The lure of a free galley, I suppose, and then the need for a fast-paced, light read. It was a mistake, though: the main character's histrionics wore on my nerves. So, learn a lesson from my experience, and pass this one up if the first book didn't do anything for you. On the other hand, fans of the first book will probably enjoy this one, too.

This is the second of a s

This is the second of a series in which Grace, the daughter of a diplomat on Embassy Row, makes great strides in learning who she really is and what happened to her mother. In this second installment, a young West Point officer is killed, A Russian diplomat's son is accused of the crime, a diplomatic crisis erupts in Acadia, and attempts are made on the lives of Grace and her brother. While some of the questions are answered, it is obvious that a third installment is on the way, as Grace and her injured brother are airlifted from the embassy to places unknown. This is a fascinating series filled with politics, glamour, suspense and lots of action.

Back to Embassy Row, and

Back to Embassy Row, and the kids that inhabit the various embassies. Things pick up quickly after the end of the first book, Grace is still indisposed after the commotion with the former Prime Minister of Adria. So much so that her older brother Jamie arrives for a visit from West Point with fellow cadet John Spencer. The first night they arrive, all the kids wind up out a party on a nearby island. Fighting ensues and by the next morning, a body washes ashore. I like that the kids of the various embassies utilize their own version of detente and for the most part, get along well. It's refreshing to see Grace have a friend like Noah that isn't a love interest and that they include the younger Rosie as well. And as much as I want Grace to be a kick butt Gallagher Girl, the series hinges on her weaknesses, which she spends a lot of time ruminating about. Whether or not she's crazy, the scarred man is real, her mom is dead and Ms. Chancellor isn't being as forthcoming as she could. We get a glimpse into more of Adria's history, both the founding and the two hundred year old storming of the palace, which led to the deaths of the royal family.

This is book two of the E

This is book two of the Embassy Row Series. I love Ally Carter's books, but this series is my least favorite. I don't particularly care for the main character because she annoys me with running around all the time and failing to think at all--she relies completely on running away instead of engaging any brain power. In this novel, Grace's brother Jamie is home for a visit. He has always worried about his sister and has always known what happened to their mother. Grace, however, doesn't know that and feels guilty, believing her brother could only hate her. Of course, he doesn't, but they'll have to work through these feelings. Jamie brings home a friend from West Point who is murdered the first night they're home. Alexei is blamed. The novel then revolves around proving Alexei's innocence amidst a rowdy and dangerous festival the country celebrates. Noah, Megan, Lila, and Dominic are all back trying to protect Grace from herself. As they investigate the murder, they discover the history of the island as they try to stay away from the dangers of the festival. The history proves essential to the killing and attempted killings that occur in the novel. Don't get me wrong, it's a good novel--it's just not as good as Gallagher Girls or Heist Society. If you like surprises and an entertaining story with interesting characters, you'll like this novel.
