This is another fairly predictable instalment about the fabulous McCarthy family but Marie Force is drawing on the tools that made her Treading Water series so successful to infuse this story with a bit more grit. The medical disruptions in this one as well as the fairly thorough character development of our heroine makes for a more interesting story than some of the earlier titles in the series.
While this is a good read, the character development and the attention to detail isn't as good as that found in Marie's Treading Water series. Much has been said about this narrator. Her style certainly takes some getting used to but it does allow the listener to make their own emotional decisions rather than depending on a narrator to do it for them. The recording does sound quite amateur with lots of background noise and very obvious edit points. Audible should make reference to whether the book has been self-published or professionally published. They should do the same with the recording quality.
The story needed to be more original.
Something more mentally stimulating
I might if the story was more convincingly written and the grammar and tenses weren't incorrect.
There were some nice moments but I saw every plot twist coming.
There are so many books in this genre that, in order to stand out they need to be original. They must also have literary integrity. This book had neither of those qualities.
