This was another fantastic story. From the beginning to the end there is excitement and suspence. You never see it coming . Love the series and the characters in each book.

I would have thoroughly enjoyed this series of books had the grammar and usage not been so distracting. The characters are entertaining and the plots plausible, but the writing errors make my skin crawl. The author seems to have an aversion to the word "that" when it is desperately needed for clarification in a sentence beginning with, "The fact..." I would often have to read the sentence again in order to make sense of it. Then there are the basic grammar mistakes. Who doesn't shudder when reading, "I should have went..." and, "If I was her..."in the narrative? Poor grammar may suit a character in dialogue, but the narrative should be free of those mistakes. The author needs to utilize the hyphen in descriptive phrases such as, "...she said in her five-packs-a-day-though-she-didn't-smoke voice..." because, again, many times I had to reread the sentence for clarification because no hyphens were used. The author uses that phrasing technique frequently so the lack of hyphens is very noticeable. Commas were also missing quite often in places where they were needed for easier reading. In all fairness, I believe the author writes as if she were telling the story aloud, in which case her inflection and pauses would help the listener follow the story more easily. The written word, though, must use punctuation and proper usage to accomplish what the spoken word does with inflection, intonation, and breath control. When I forced myself to ignore the writing issues, I did enjoy the books and would recommend them to anyone looking for a light, entertaining read. If you're not as picky about grammar and usage as I am, and I realize that most of the world is NOT, I believe you'll get a kick out of Fiona and the other characters in these books.
