This started really slow and by the third chapter I was drumming my fingers, wondering when something was going to happen and what on Earth I was thinking when I requested it for review.
I persisted because the glowing reviews far outnumbered the less impressed and I didn't want to miss out on a potentially good story, although I had pretty much already decided this author isn't for me.
There's no way around it, the protagonist is a dull character. She's never gone anywhere or done anything. The writing meanders.
This one just wasn't for me.
