I really wanted to like this book. But there were too many things wrong. First, the story is set in California, but the lead character and her frien..Show More »d had southern accents. Second, two of the characters are from the Hawaiian islands and speak in a dialect that prevents them from speaking in correct sentences. Third, it is difficult to tell the difference between some of the voices that the narrator uses for the characters. Forth, the narrator's voice is annoying. Once I got passed all of that, I have to say that the plot is actually good and the characters are likeable. It's an interesting story and I might buy the next book. Unfortunately the narrator is the same. But I'm hoping to find out a bit more about the characters. I'm giving this series and this author one more chance to impress me.
