Ive enjoyed the Charlotte McNally series by Hank Phillippi Ryan, a look at the life of a television news journalist on the wrong side of forty who finds herself solving crime whilst catching herself a rather nice chap. Air Time, the third in this series, is unfortunately a bit of a disappointment.

There was nothing intrinsically wrong with the story, except perhaps that I found the central mystery, that of knockoff handbags, one to get my head around (Im not into handbags, or purses as theyre called in the US). But I felt less engaged in this story as in the other two and it took me a couple of weeks to read off and on.

Charlotte is still an appealing character, although her disagreements with Josh about their relationship in this book made me feel that she was being a bit unrealistic and that he had right on his side. After all, should work be the most important thing in life? I think not.

As usual, she is assisted by Franklin, and there are other characters from the previous books who make another appearance. I enjoyed some of the amusing dialogue with Susannah, for example, but overall I found this book a bit of a disappointment. It's definitely not up to the standard of the first two.
