“I found myself struggling to connect from almost the beginning.”
~ Under the Covers

I’ve wanted to try this author for quite some time now.  I admit, this cover drew me in because it’s absolutely gorgeous and the blurb was interesting as well.  So this was the one I finally dove in with.

This is mainly a mystery with a small side storyline of romance.  I wouldn’t classify it as a romance since it’s such a small element. The heroine of this story, Charlotte, finds herself in the middle of a suspected murder investigation when her step-sister’s best friend is found dead of a supposed overdose while her step-sister is away on vacation.  Or is she?  She has to closely work with private investigator, Max, to uncover whether it was a murder and where her sister really is.

At first I thought this would be something I could totally get into and get excited about.  But I found myself struggling to connect from almost the beginning.  I couldn’t figure out why that was, and then I realized it was the writing style.  It felt a bit disjointed and I had to try to bring myself back to the story several times because it kept losing my interest.  This is my biggest problem with this book.

The romance was a bit of an afterthought and I don’t think it fit well for me.  I would’ve preferred that not to be there, almost.  However, the plot was actually good!  I wish the delivery would’ve been better for me because I think I would’ve enjoyed the story a lot.  Sadly, it just didn’t manage to quite work as well as I was expecting.spacer

  1. I, too, was lured by this cover and almost read this author for the first time beginning with this book. Thanks to lukewarm reviews like yours, I know to start elsewhere!

    Nice review. 🙂

  2. Yours is the third review I’ve read on this one about not connecting to the story and feeling there were some development issues. I liked her last one, but I think I’ll skip this one.
