3.0 out of 5 stars Story B+...grammer F April 9, 2012
By DebK
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I need to start this review by telling you that I have a degree in English and, whether I want to or not, I "see" all the typos and missing words in the books that I read. Sometimes I drive myself nuts. And this book drove me batty!

The story is pretty good. The characters are fairly well drawn and I could get invested in them. The story itself isn't too bad, though at times it moves much too fast, and the bad guys are pretty obvious from the very beginning.

But the editor of this book should be ashamed of him/herself! Short choppy sentences. Verbs that change tenses in the same sentence. Sentences that are just phrases. It was very difficult to enjoy reading the story when you have to wade through all the bad grammer to understand what you're reading.

That being said...I have purchased the second book in the series : The Aspens Fall. I'm working on the theory that some lessons were learned in the writing and publishing of the first book.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Aspen Series June 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished reading all three of the books in the Aspen Series. Now, I'm wondering why I put myself through that three times. I don't think I've ever read a book that had so many typos, mispelled words and bad grammar it in. Just out of curiosity, when I started the third book, I kept a running total of how many errors I found. I found 19 just in the third book alone!! I'm sure if I were to go back and re-read it, I could find more. It's too bad there is not a minus rating on these books. I don't think I will ever read another one by this author.

1.0 out of 5 stars Reads like a Dick & Jane book April 14, 2012
By Micki
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Missing words, bad grammar and a lot of short sentences that just don't make sense. Reminds me a lot of the Dick & Jane books I read as a child. See Dick. See Dick run. This was a painful read!

1.0 out of 5 stars Ouch, too painful to read April 27, 2012
By omurcu
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I recently received my Kindle Fire as a gift and have been thoroughly been enjoying being able to download and read books without going out to a store to buy them. I simply cannot understand how something like this is allowed to be published. I thoroughly agree with DebK and Janis in Oregon. This was one of the most painful books I ever tried to read. All the errors in grammar and punctuation made it impossible to enjoy the story. The author desperately needs a refresher course in English or she needs to find a good editor. I can't believe anyone would pay good money for the sequel. How does this kind of rubbish manage to get pubished at all?

OMG, I just took a look at the preview of the second book in this series (The Aspens Fall). I don't think she bothered to read her reviews because this book does not seem much better than the first one in the series. She appears to be trying to get her tenses right this time but her writing is still flat and stilted with incomplete sentences. She is still sprinkling commas anywhere. Just in the preview, the new heroine tells her dogs to "heal" instead of "heel" and sees that Brad is "quit" handsome instead of "quite" handsome.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly Written March 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is consumed with errors! The narrated style make the reading drab and boring--the voice reads like a directed play. At best, ineffective. Missing words and errors are somewhat distracting and continue throughout the short book. The conclusion leads into the next installment in the series but most will not be inclined to read further. Would not recommend even as a freebie.

I agree with Deb K's review, except her grading of the novel is more generous than mine. I also have a degree in English and found this book to have some of the most deplorable English grammar, spelling, punctuation and just plain wrong-word writing I have ever experienced. I was never sure which "voice" the author was using as she continued to mismatch pronouns and verbs such that sometimes present, past and future tense were used in the same paragraph. One gem has the author writing "his self" instead of "himself". The grammer was so bad, I was amazed that the book was even published -- and, with a sequel coming no less!

The story of a divorced woman suddenly being stalked by her evil ex-husband, with the corresponding new love interest being a former beau/cop is okay. However, similar story lines abound in the Romance genre, usually with better grammar. The formula of contemporary romance -- having a love interest, the dilemma or danger to be resolved, a little sex, and the denouement of a satisfying happy ending -- is a tried and true one. Romance readers never tire of it. I just like to be able to read the book without holding a red correction pen in my hand.

Shame on the author and double shame on the editor. Overall grade: D

1.0 out of 5 stars horrible grammar March 14, 2013
By Amy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book had the worst grammar mistakes I have ever seen. Shame on editor or whoever for not giving it. In one paragraph alone the word she was used 10 times. The sentences would use present tense when clearly talking past tense. Did not enjoy this book at all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Obviously self-published June 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I say this book is obviously self-published because no self-respecting publisher would allow this out under their name. I am AMAZED at the illiteracy that abounds in e-books through self-publishing. If I had paid for this book, I would be ranting. As it is, I just stopped reading. It is painful to attempt to keep up with the change in voice, tense, grammatical errors, etc. Unless you are a glutton for punishment, don't bother with this book.
