I picked this book up three times before I could make it through the first chapter. The main character does something so dumb in chapter one that every time I read it, I would groan in mortification for her and put the book down. A few months later the cycle would repeat.
However, I'd read and enjoyed other books by Ms. Frost that were companions to this series, so I gave it another shot, vowing to get through the groan-worthy bit to the good stuff. I'm glad I did; the rest of the book was awesome! So, if like me you're having trouble with the beginning, keep going--it gets infinitely better.
