More complex character development, plot twists, and believability. After reading the storyline, I thought this could be an interesting plot. It was not; not remotely. I kept thinking that surely this story was going to progress and deepen. It did not. It's what I call a straight line. Almost the entire book happens in a matter of days with little development of what brought us to this point, we are simply told of past events. No complexity at all.The performance was a little fast, but I rather appreciate that. I did have trouble understanding the male lead.
It was silly, protracted foreplay and little else. I felt like I was in the head of a 16 year old. The villain was so inconsequential and underdeveloped that he might have had 100 lines devoted to him. I kept asking "Why?" "Why would these characters be behaving in this manner?" The answers were not clear.
There is a violent murder in the house and no one hears it. The heroine cleans it up and never says a word, and everyone acts like it's life as usual. I found much of this story difficult to believe.
I had just read two intense, epic sy-fy books and thought I would read a quick, historical mystery, as I do periodically. I may never again.
