If only there were more attention to basic grammar! For example, when one uses "if" and "I wish," one also uses "were" instead of "was."
I wish I were psychic.
If only I were psychic.
And one never says "me and anybody." Never! Ever!! It's "anybody" and "I/me." Every single time.
"Jack and I" ran up the hill.
She gave it to "Jill and me."
These basic grammar errors detract from these books and reduce their worth considerably. If the author wishes to be taken seriously, she needs to pay better attention. And I cannot imagine any editor worth his/her salt missing such common grammatical mistakes.
I'm getting so tired of what I think of as "valley girl" grammar.
Oh, one more: "There's" is a contraction of "there" and "is." One wouldn't say, "There is witches out there." It sounds uneducated and common. In the same logic, one wouldn't say, "there's witches out there. "There is" and "there's" go with the singular. There ARE goes with the plural:
"There's a man over there" is correct.
"There are men over there" is correct.
"There's men over there" is a basic grammatical error that makes the author sound uneducated. And makes her characters sound stupid. These characters who have been so aptly developed shouldn't sound stupid!!!
The author would not get by with this in any reputable publishing house. And there is no excuse for getting by with it in a Kindle book.
I have heard the argument that some authors think they are reaching their "common" readers better with "common" language. They don't think about how this reduces the quality of their books, perpetuates generation after generation of bad language users, and makes them look common and uneducated.
There is no excuse!! It's either dumb or smart.
That story introduces most of the characters that are in this one. If you like paranormal cozy mysteries, that are not heavy on sex but still have romance, check em out, I think you will be pleased.
When a black cat jumps on Mallory in a panic during tour of haunted places, Darwin receives images of a man putting a rattlesnake into someones house. The sisters go to the address on the cat's tags and can not see anything but find a hole in a screen. Darwin calls her Detective boyfriend who check around the neighborhood and finds enough cause to enter the house where, naturally he finds a dead body.
Darwin's need to discover the murderer without revealing her talents draws her into a tangle of suspicion and suspicious characters including Zach, the son of the dead woman. The stress of working behind Will's back put a strain on their relationship, forcing Darwin to make a tough decision about about their relationship and about her use of her abilities. The mystery takes precedence over the romance but the problems between Darwin and Will are woven throughout the story.
I enjoyed getting to know Mallory but would like to have seen more of Frankie in this book. She was one of the highlights of the first book in the Pet Psychic Mystery Series, Karma is a Bitch. It will be interesting to see what characters pop up in the next book.
I gave it 4 stars because as a woman who owns a pet boutique she should know what food to feed a cat and that they can't get the nutrition they need from tuna. It came across as Darwin is either a dog snob or uninformed about cats and shouldn't have a pet boutique, but a dog boutique. I plan on reading the next book in the series but maybe Darwin could learn more about the other pets, besides dogs, that her boutique services. Maybe that could lead to another mystery.
