I am looking forward to more of Olivia's adventures.
I don't know if I could call SPLITSVILLE a gem, but i can say that I enjoyed it every bit as much as I've enjoyed some books I've spent a heck of a lot more money and expectations on. The were some issues with typos and grammar, but honestly there wasn't anymore than I'm used to finding in some of the the books put out by the publishing houses. And truly, unless you're me, who knows where to go to get good, reliable, knowledgeable editing without selling your first born child.
**Call up your local community college, or perhaps even high school, and talk to their English department. Teachers are so poorly paid that many of them edit books, term papers, and thesis for only a small fee.**
Aside from typos and such, which were not overly distracting BTW, the story was light hearted despite the subject matter. I really enjoyed the addition of the SPCA and the dogs I thought that gave the story depth. I am a sucker for Schnauzers though. I loved the character of the aunt, especially since her sexuality was appropriate to her age. That's hard to find anymore. She was fun and quirky, but in keeping with her age. Though I think one less decade would have increased her believability. In addition to the aunt keeping her pants on, I was glad to see that, unlike so many other books, the story line didn't rely on sex carrying the story.
I really hope that Tonya Kappes, the author, recognizes a good thing and takes the time to really develop this out into a full series. I know I would certainly read future novels if she did! She develops her characters well, leads the story line well, creates a fully believable scene, and most importantly she lets the reader care about the characters and the story. Readers shouldn't be too snarky about punctuation and grammar, that's something that can be learned and be improved, a lack of talent and imagination on the other hand are forever,
I mean, you think you have issues? At least you're not Olivia Davis. Not only is she neatness-impaired and boyfriend-free, she also sees auras. Yes, auras - you know, the mood-shifting energy that surrounds the human body. It makes it a little difficult to focus and hold down a full-time job.
That's why she started Splitsville.com, a heartbreak-for-hire web site. Sure, it's a little tough to play the heavy and break off relationships for people, but she can stay anonymous - and most importantly, she can work from home, and not have to deal with all that distracting energy.
Things are going, well, too - she even managed to meet a cute guy in her off hours - when the unimaginable happens: Splitsville.com clients start getting killed. Olivia soon finds her whole way of life in jeopardy. Worse yet, it looks like she's being framed - and she might even be a target!
This book was funny and clever with a unique premise. I truly couldn't put it down.
