I went into this one thinking I was going to love it but I found it kinda flat. For me the romance was a bit flat and the story dragged a bit. The premise is really intriguing but I just think it could have been carried off at a faster pace. This book took me a month to read and that's a long time for me. The stuff about Japan was good though and I do feel like the author really captured Japan well. I felt like I was there. I'd consider picking up the next in the series to see if it picks up for me. I think this read was less about the book not being good and maybe more about it just not being a good fit for me. I tend to read thrillers so I got caught by the slower pacing in this one.
