    Great story; HORRIBLE text

    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.
