As most know by now Amazon, and it's all knowing persnickety algorithm, has made a statement recently regarding authors reviewing books. While I find it's bullshit, I understand there are enough fake reviews to fuck it up for the rest of us.
That being said, here's a little bit about a book I picked up on the Kindle Lending Library for free.
Going into this story I had high hopes. Callie, our heroine, is a sassy dead girl full of moxy, which are easily relate able attributes for me. I dug the idea of a ghostly main character and her handicaps as a ghost moved the story along without getting boring or ridiculous.
While overall I really did like this whodunit, a few key points irked me. On a few occasions I wanted to shake the shit out of Callie and Ashara. I felt like a few times clues/etc. were "forgotten", or otherwise not realized, conveniently to lengthen the story with another meaningless task.
As the story unfolded and the characters began to matter, suspenseful scenes kept me interested and curious to uncover the mystery. Unfortunately, about midway, I lost a bit of the story as secrets are uncovered and the backstory seeps through confusing the timeline a bit.
The romance is at a minimum and the bit that is there made me smile. Although I'd called it from first mention of the characters. I felt like I called more than a few clues before they happened, but Miss Margo had me on a couple.
By the end I was pleased. I appreciated the characters and the emotion the author seemed to put into the politics of the storyline. I only wish the mystery were more mystery and less bumblefucking around in the dark.
