Fatal Legislation was the second book in Ellen Butler’s Karina Cardinal Mystery series. I got hooked on KC, which is what she is fondly referred to in the books as, with the first in the series, Isabella’s Painting. You will want to read the that one prior to reading Fatal Legislation as this one is a continuation of sorts.
This was not my favorite of the two so far, but was still good. KC is a headstrong woman and she knows how to trust her gut and get the job done, but this was a bit thick with the political law thriller for me. I just get bored or tired with the details with these books and they are not usually the first type I will pick up. This would be my reasoning behind the four stars instead of five. Clearly a personal opinion and nothing to do with the quality of the writing that Ellen Butler displays once again in this one. Like I mentioned above KC gets herself caught up this time in a political mystery that will keep you on your toes trying to figure it out right along with her. I do hope that we will get some more of KC and her mystery solving quirky self in the near future. Thanks for the great read Ms. Butler.
