Title: Finally read this (and can't believe I didn't post before now!)!

I still don't have a paper copy of St. Patrick's Gargoyle, but I caught the Kindle edition on one of the Early Bird Books sales, and I read it on the app on my phone.

I thoroughly enjoyed the story; it's a good bit lighter in tone than a lot of KK's work, but it retains the high quality writing.  And when I initially bought the Kindle edition, I was in a mental space where I needed something gentler to feed my imagination.

I loved Paddy as a character, and Templeton and his lovely Phyllida (whose existence I'm sure owes much to the late, lamented Scott MacMillan) were just . . . fun.  Even though some serious things were happening, I have to agree with KK herself in the afterword that this story is "Katherine at play," and even when she's playing, she turns out some good yarns.  ;)

You've reminded me to read it again - it's great fun with a gentle feel. Maybe it's  not coincidental that the gargoyles on Notre Dame had been removed for renovation.
