Won't read any more of this series
on October 8, 2011
I was hoping with the second book of this series that I may feel differently about the whole prospect of this new series of RMB. However, this is a boring book. The story is boring, the characters are boring. It just isn't grabbing me. I am disappointed because I am an avid RMB fan. But this feels like going down a road with no direction and no outlet. So unlike her previous works. When I pick up a novel, especially an RMB novel, I am expecting to be entertained, find something in the story line that I will probably research, like a bit of history (she's great at that and makes the book so interesting) and know I'm going to laugh and cry because in the past, her characters felt like people I knew. I could get really close to her characters and story line, no matter what book it was. I just can't get into this series. It's not as well written as her previous books. I'm glad I only borrowed this from the library and didn't spend the money on it.
