This book has a fabulous description. After reading it, I was totally sold on the storyline. It seemed right up my alley and I was happy to shell out $5.99 for the Kindle ebook.
I was hoping to be decently entertained and enjoy a good mystery. Sadly, the book description was far superior to the actual book. Similar to a movie trailer that makes the movie seem way better than it actually is.
To me, the writing was awkward and the characters were shallow. I couldn’t connect with any of them or by into the plot. Most of the story elements were rushed and lacked depth and appropriate follow through.
I have read many books in this genre set in this same time period where I was swept away by the engaging characters and fully taken in with the unfolding mystery. Unfortunately this attempt fell flat. It wasn’t terrible, just forgettable. It seems to be the first in a series but I won’t be returning for a sequel.
