    Overall I really liked the story..... but, needed a good proof reader. Was confused a few times when Gavin became Alan or vis-a-versa... Had to stop a re-read. Would buy amother of her reads providing it was proofed first.

    Good story line

    Yes, there were many errors but I did enjoy the story. I would definately be interested in seeing this author's future work. I also know all authors may not be able to obtain professional proofreading and challenge this author to continue her endeavors with an eye to obtaining more help. All in all I enjoyed it.

    The mistakes in word usage, grammar made this book difficult to read.

    This book needed a good proof reader.

    It's a Love/Hate Thing

    This book was weird. The story was so good but the ending was so incredibly bad! I think there were too many unanswered questions and the main character seems to have lost a great deal of maturity throughout the book. Also, you can very plainly see where certain relationships are going so the sizzle of anticipation is just sucked right out of you.

    The other issue I have is the editing, or lack thereof. There are so many grammatical errors that a few times, things just don't make sense! I figured out a while back this is just one of those ebook things so I expect a fair amount of that; but this one takes the cake. The review in the book refers to the character as Ella but in the book, the character and the author have the same name...weird. It could have so much more potential if they'd go back to the drawing board...

    Had some twists and turns, but I could picture the characters and the countryside. Thought it was well written.

    Did I buy an unfinished copy? I know that this didn't cost much

    Did I buy an unfinished copy? I know that this didn't cost much but there was no cover, copyright page, or table of contents before the story began. The title did not appear at the top of my Nook, only the first few words of the book.

    The edits were so poor that I thought someone tried to use "Spell Check" but clearly didn't know how. What is "hu", which was scattered liberally throughout dialog. "Weather" for "weather"? "To" and "too" confused. Besides errors in usage or grammar or spelling every couple of pages, my copy had highlighting I did not add. I am very disappointed in the poor quality of the book. Perhaps if I could have read it without being so distracted by mistakes, I might have enjoyed the story more.

    The book definitely needs a proof reader. The book even has the author as the main character.

    I really liked the story, but was left unsatisfied. For one, there is too much blah blah just to creat pages. And, the end kind of left me hanging. The author is a good story teller, but they need to cut back the excess and get to the point. Yes, it needed proof reading, but stuff like that doesn't bother me.
