I never thought i would write a bad review of a Lynsay Sands Argeneau Novel. I downloaded this as soon as I saw it. I wish now I had missed it.
This story never really takes hold of you I even stopped listening to it before it was half way. I came back to it later in the hope It might get better or grab me . . . sadly it did not.
This should have been another hit, Alexandra Willan's story should have been as good as her sisters but you never feel that there is any real connection going on here between her & Cale or at times reality.
Cale pretends to be a chief to get to meet her & badly burns dishes in her high end restaurant but some how they manage to keep that fact from Alex & even feed half cooked badly burnt food to patrons & convince them its mana from heaven , , , meanwhile Alex is having problems with the new restaurant we are to believe that a successful business woman who has already built & run a successful restaurant does not seem to know the basics of dealing with business and trade people. E.g. A professional painter signs for paint he is told not to use until she OK's it. He does so anyway even though its green & the tins are labeled white. The painter leaves saying he will bill Alex. In the real world the professional painter would not only be up for repainting but paying for the used paint he signed for & used in spite of be told other wise. But Alex a successful business woman apparently cant see this.
This of course sets up for Cale Valens to manage the fit-out & leaves Alex to cook . . .
I know this is fiction but so much just rings so hollow like the fact that Cale appears to be the only immortal to date that does not know how to use a microwave ( they use them to heat blood etc) or apparently read (yet he is a successful business man) he burns/destroys one microwave meal after another until Bricker comes.
This just does not have Lynsay's usual flair or style its almost as if it's been written by someone else.
