The story tried to be like an Agatha Christie, but was sadly lacking.
The writing style was really jolting with inadequate vocabulary, such as something being disregarded as not being "prudent" to the investigation instead of 'pertinent'.
The editing was really sloppy with words and verbs missing, text duplicated, redundant vocabulary and the likes.
Even the text did not display properly, going up and down font size like a yoyo
Altogether a really, really annoying book.
The author takes us on a journey of chaos, confusion, mystery, and vengeance. The characters are realistic, easy to identify with and quirky--everything characters should be. I would have preferred a little more description of what they looked like, but it didn't deter me from reading.
The story was tied up nicely in an intriguing way that kept me reading all the way to the end. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys light-hearted mysteries, because the one thing I found refreshing about this book was the lack of vulgarity and intense sexual situations. Not that I'm against these elements in general. They have their places in certain books. But this author was able to tell an engaging story without those elements. Who knew nursing homes could be so interesting?
By Chapter 5, I simply couldn't deal any longer with the poor editing, and the fact that the main character, so competent in dealing with residents suffering from dementia, seems both terrified of and unable to interact appropriately with anyone in a position of authority. I gave up and deleted the book from my Kindle.
I would think that even free books would see the light of an editor. I suppose we get what we pay for.
