Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This was not the author's best efforts. The plot seemed trite and drummed up. The lead female character seem juvenile in thought and actions and was a turn off. The author seemed to use the same adjectives and adverbs over and over again. It began to be a little annoying. If you are just looking for some fluff to fill in time then this is the book for you.
Love books, love this author, but let down this time. This was not her best effort, the female lead was annoying and the dialogue was not realistic. Some plot details need to be explained, not "spoken" it became tiresome after like the 2nd or 3rd conversation, same topics and ideas/plot details kept being repeated over and over as part of the dialogue. No one talks like that, fatigue sets in midconversation and it makes you not care. I didnt care to finish the last few pages. Lastly the action situation at the end wasn't mildly realistic and seemed thrown in?..still not sure why and think I tossed the book at one point :-) Three stars because I'm a long time fan and would recommend new fans check out her earlier work which is phenomenal. but was very disappointed. Sorry Bette!
