Editor on vacation?
I enjoy this authors writing style but I am utterly shocked at the inconsitencies in the story, the constant repeatition adding little to no value to the story. I get mentioning characteristics about a character or have a little flashback memory to explain the past with a person a few times to build the connection with the audience... but this book is over the top repeatative on several things that really arent too difficult for a reader to grasp. Joe died. Joe restored the house. Maddy is thin. Maddy has been married many times. Eleanor does not like to be called Ellie. Kevin hurt Ellie in highschool. ...... I am 2/3's into the book, and I think one or more of the facts is on every page.
The reason I stopped reading to write this review is because on around page 140, they totally used the wrong first name for a character. Not a misspelling, a 100% wrong name. Used it twice and three paragraphs down... went back to the correct name. How could an editor not catch this?? Really???
I feel like these books are sub-standard. Again, I do like this author, and enjoy the cozy mystery genre. I just feel that this series was rushed, not allowing for true developmemt of the story to occur. Using the wrong name for a character is so elementary... very dissapointed.
