3.0 out of 5 stars Good writing, maybe needs a bit more, May 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Red Tide (Kindle Edition)
I would give this three stars because it's written well enough that I wanted to make it to the end of the story. I wanted to find out what happened. I didn't give it more stars because of the lack of real relationship between the heroine and the detective. It starts out well, with her being understandably annoyed by him - that scene is well written - the only problem is it's almost the only scene between them. There is no reason for her to be constantly in his mind - and no reason for her to ever be attracted to Nick at all.
Based on what I've seen of this author, I'd encourage her to keep trying and just add some more interactions between those who are supposed to wind up together. We have to believe that it's possible, and in this book I just didn't get there quite.

I really agree with this! I almost felt like she rushed a bit through the story (which I loved) in slamming characters together and towards the finish. Loved the characters and the story, just a bit more relationship building for the man/woman part would be a huge add to this book. Looking forward to seeing what she does next, I think she's got a ton of potential!

If you would be interested in receiving an advance .mobi file of THE MISSINGS for review, please let me know. The targeted release date is October 15th. Please understand that THE MISSINGS is not a romance, or a romantic suspense.
