However, if you can get past the editing debacle, I think Kate George has good story telling abilities.
I will read the next book, California Schemin', with the hopes the story is still there and she found a better editor - will have to get from the library though, hate paying for a book that has so many errors.
Overall: 3.5 stars
Plot/Storyline: 4 stars
Definitely plot-driven, the book got off to a fast start before making a mercifully brief digression to provide the seemingly obligatory background. The frequent pauses for animal care annoyed me, as did Bree's falls and the sex scenes - they just distracted from the plot. Brooks' focus on Bree as his prime suspect turned into a serious plot hole. Whodunit was pretty obvious, and the red herrings were more satisfying than the actual resolution. But the bottom line is that this book kept me reading and made me want to read the next in spite of the flaws.
Characters: 4 stars
George's characters feel stronger and more realistic than they are. It wasn't until later that I realized I hadn't been given any reason to find Meg's wandering eye or Rob's protectiveness or Brooks' obsession with Bree's guilt believable. Tom's brother is sometimes named Beau and sometimes Beaux. But Bree is a likable and admirable heroine. She has decided what is important in her life. She wants a romantic relationship but not desperately enough to believe anything her erstwhile boyfriend says, a pleasant change from single women blinded by their emotional needs.
Writing style: 4 stars
Sentence structure is fine. Dialogue moves right along, but did not achieve distinct voices for the characters. Descriptions did not mesh in tone with plot action; several times I felt George was building up to something happening that didn't.
Formatting: 2 stars
The book had major formatting problems, and George really needs to pull the current sale file and revise it. Some paragraphs were broken in the middle. The type size changed frequently, as often as two or three times per page, a serious distraction from the plot. Neither adjusting the type size nor the type color fixed the problem.
Just a note: the ebook formatting is terrible - sentences mysteriously continue a few lines later. Font changes size. Some text indented for no reason. Dialogue mushed together (or worse, separated by blank lines). But overall, a nice fun read.
The formatting for Kindle was among the worst I've run into.
This book made it just above my cutoff for reading to the end. In retrospect, I don't think it was worth the time or the $2.50 price tag. I've read a number of $0.99 and free books that were much better. I recommend passing this one by, or at least reading the free sample before you buy.
