Tess Gerritson always writes a great story and this was no exception. However, I am from Massachusetts and I just couldn't get past Jane Rizolli sounding like a combination of Marisa Tomei in "My Cousin Vinny" and New Jersey's Carmella Soprano.
Maybe readers of romance novels.
The narration was okay.
I didn't like any of it so it wasn't an editing problem.
This book turned me off right from the beginning. The foolish, silly diary, socialite snob and the "feel sorry for me" husband were boring, trite and simplistic. I figured out most of it and only listened to the whole thing because I wanted to see if I was missing something that everyone else seemed to find so fascinating. Part 2 stretched credibility so far it snapped. I really like to have a protagonist to root for (even a serial killer like Dexter is more appealing than these two) but I couldn't stand a single character in this book. I seriously don't get why this is a best seller.
