While I like how Melinda writes and I like her books and have read several series, I would give them a 4.5, but I give the grammar and spelling in this book a 1. It was atrocious. It made it so difficult to read. I had to keep rereading to figure out what the sentence was saying. Definitely takes away from enjoying the reading. I am an avid reader both kindle and hardcover. Have been since a child-for over 60 years. I read two or three books at a time. So, while I am not an English major, I think this detracts from the author's ability and reader's pleasure, and the value of a kindle. This is not the first kindle book I have had this issue but this book is the worst- almost every sentence and often multiple errors in each sentence. Please re-evaluate the way you do the writing in kindle- it is either a non- English speaking native, or a poor dictation device. Please Fix it.
