There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The characters were not fleshed out. Their initial introductions were confusing. The story itself read like an adult Scooby Doo mystery. “Nina” felt too nasty and unrealistic while the friend who always wore red felt like a caricature.
I also thought the main character, the detective, seemed immature, and her vernacular was odd. (I have truly forgotten her name already..not even kidding.)
I could continue but I think you get the point. Skip it.
