Typos;problems with past and present tense;spelling errors-- somebody please edit this book! The heroine wasnt flighty--she came off as either stupid or desperate. There was no lol moment for me. Thumbs down

I thought the story line was good but couldnt get used to the author using obvious male names for the sisters. The typos were also annoying but i was determined to get to the end.

The story line, plot and all were good. There were so many grammatical errors that I had to re-read and back track so that what I last read made sense. Maybe that is why it was so cheap.
