I love all her books and am hoping that they continue to convert them to Nook books so I can get the complete works. However, Barnes & Noble really should pay more attention to whoever they have converting them to e-format. There were SO many spelling errors! And evidently, no editor! I found that really annoying! Those of us who have bought the e editions should get at least a 50% refund for this! There's no excuse for this when books are your business!

Fortunately I had read this story years ago before I purchased the nook version otherwise I'd have had trouble actually following it as the text is so full of errors. It was like something you might see in a free efile. It appeared that they fed the manuscript through a text recognition program & never bothered to edit it - just a mess. The story is a a funny and informative look into life just post WWII on Cape Cod with year-rounders & summer visitors coping with a sudden invasion of GI Bill college students with a fairly good mystery attached.I recommend it if you can get a hard copy but the Nook version is terrible.

I am a fan of Phoebe Atwood Taylor and Asey Mayo, and while the plot and characters of this story are quite good, this nook addition is awful.  I think there are spelling errors on almost every page.  Most of them seem like optical character reader errors, in other words they scanned the text in and some words were not identified properly, so "falling" became "failing", "darn" became "dam", etc.  If you can over look the that you then have to get past the odd line breaks, like the word "your" broken after "y".   It really made it difficult to  enjoy.  Too bad because it is an entertaining mystery.
