    1. I really enjoyed reading this book The mystery is very clever and kept me guessing right along with the characters Patrick s descriptions of modern Japanese nightlife were easy to picture and contained information I had not previously known I always like to learn something new when I read a book and this one fulfilled that goal In the previous book I felt that Yumi was not as strong a character as she needed to be She has developed some backbone now and in this book is much believable She still [...]


    2. I ve studied the Japanese language and culture and I ve also lived and worked in Japan but I have a very limited understanding of the male host industry and I also know very little about the world of mizu sh bai the night time entertainment business in Japan so this book was a real eye opener The author has clearly done extensive research to make this book come to life and I was very impressed by how cleverly she meshed the intricacies of the Japanese culture into an intriguing and delightful st [...]


    3. I was looking for the same kind of thrill in this novel that I had gotten while reading Nightshade, and I promise you did not disappoint Fallen Angel has all the action, drama, and fashionable living that Nightshade has It also is just as detail oriented As someone who has read all of Jonelle s blog, I can assure you, this woman has set her eyes on the prize, and followed through full force She experiences in her own life many of the things within the novels and it definitely leaves a realistic [...]


    4. Patrick s descriptions of modern Japanese nightlife were easy to picture and contained information I had not previously known.Fallen Angel has all the action, drama, and fashionable living It also is just as detail oriented The novel was set in the male fashion driven 1st Hoshi The host club Club Nova in Kabuki cho for a great part of the book It is a life of lavish luxury, and men making sure women feel wanted This is something all women long for The amount of detail put into these scenes are [...]


    5. Liked it as much as her first which I liked a LOT Besides the fast pace mystery romance etc, I love the range of Japan she captures everything from the four starriest restaurants to love hotels with convenient manacles attached to the beds sketchy host clubs to wooden puzzle box rooms in the manor of an old samurai family I d love to visit Japan someday, but even if I do, I don t think I ll ever be quite so immersed in the society as I am in these books.



    6. Well written mystery, with enough detail to get me really gripped but without boring me with the details I m don t really enjoy flowery language with mysteries, I m of a get on with the plot type for this genre, so if you disagree with me on this, then this book is probably not for you The plot twists were reasonable, and the mystery is very cleverly played out I didn t see it coming yet what transpired was very plausible, unlike some books where for the sake of a plot twist something magical s [...]


    7. 4.5 starsIt has been a few years since I sank my teeth into a good mystery book, so when I received a copy of Fallen Angel free from Jonelle, I couldn t wait to give it a go Set in a side of Tokyo we never really hear about it, this book is a real eye opener to the seedy side of Tokyo s nightlife The first half of the story introduces the reader to many characters, who all play a part in the main story, but also have their own sub stories that are delicately intertwined into the book, to give th [...]


    8. I do not usually like mysteries That said, I love this series, Only in Tokyo, by Jonelle Patrick There are so many layers to the stories, plots and sub plots In fact, she writes similarly to the wooden locks found in the story I love the characters Yumi and Kenji Not just them, Ms Patrick manages to build believable support characters and antagonists.Murder and blood, though part of every day news, are topics I find hard to look at In reading, I am usually into books as far away from reality as [...]


    9. again, the strong element of these books is the social commentary and descriptions of Japanese ways and customs like young people who have to take over their parents crimes debts, and scarifies for honor of the family the hosts and hostesses culture as well as the very strict hierarchy in any career and the class systemry good observationsd now we get a glimpse of the strong double standard what is ok, even cool, for men, is scandalous for women for the mystery itself I guessed at half way who t [...]


    10. Don t be fooled into thinking this is a guide book It is a great mystery set in Tokyo I enjoyed learning about the specialised hotels and the host hostess clubs through the various characters It was interesting to read about the restaurants and parties, and other unique places in the book especially with the added bonus of bits of Japanese history although doesn t detract from the book at all Was great to read about the locations and it seems that the author has researched them,rather than just [...]


    11. Fallen Angel is a complex mystery full of interesting characters It also shows Japanese nightlife in Kabuki cho and the conflict between traditional Japan and modern Japan The book provides than just a setting in Japan it provides an immersion into the culture and people of Japan.
