I decided to give it 2 stars though - 1 for effort, and 1 for value, as it's a good price. If you are just looking for an inexpensive escape and have low expectations, you may be fine with this. But don't expect it to measure up to mainstream chicklit.
That said, let's move on. Here are my pros and cons for this book:
- mostly enjoyable read
- sometimes cute, endearing, exciting
- you get to really like many of the characters and dislike the ones you should
- great ending
- I cringed at the improperly used British English in this book. It was seriously painful. If you've never been to the UK, you might not pick up on it, but I think anyone who has spent any amount of time there/here or has watched Brit tv would be bound to notice. It's awful and so distracting until you get used to it enough to just decide to try to ignore it.
- some of the plot problems were solved in a way that made the story seem more contrived and harder to believe than it should have been
- sometimes it's hard to like the main character, her fault is driven to quite an extreme
- without spoiling too much, their first sex scene was completely unnecessary. Hated that bit, but keep in mind I normally don't read romance novels, so I'm far from an expert in what a regular romance reader would expect there.
Is it worth $2.99? Well, it's hard to say. I'm inclined to say no, actually. However, also working on a book, I know how much love, work and dedication goes in. I think for a first novel it's a solid accomplishment, and - so long as it's not attempted with parts in British English again - I would definitely read her second. If she improves, her next book will be worth $2.99, and I do think she will improve. These things take time and practice, and we all have to start somewhere.
