Should have read the sample first
on May 28, 2012
I managed to read the first chapter vainly hoping the book would grab me. It didn't. I found myself perpetually irritated by writing that was somewhat poor in quality.
The author made excessive use of fairly cliched description (Her straight, jaw-length, hair shadowed her pretty heart-shaped face......His tie was artfully tied.....Her wide-set, icicle blue eyes....) Then there was the common error of repeating the use of an adjective or verb in the same sentence or a run on sentence which was rather amaturish.
I tend to avoid romance stories since they seem to be produced by inexpert authors. On this occasion I was lulled into a false sense of hope by the reviews. BIG MISTAKE! Dr Zhivago, this ain't.
