Top critical review
very disappointed Kelly fan
2 November 2014
I have read pretty much all of Cathy Kelly's books. While they don't pretend to be great literature, up until now you could expect a reasonably well-written, easy to read book with likeable characters.
This latest book is terrible. I am about one-fifth of the way through and debating whether to waste my time continuing. If I do it will only be because of the $15 it cost me to buy on Kindle.
The prose is amateurish, unbelievable and clunky. The story veers wildly from character to character and possibly because of the Kindle format, this can happen from one paragraph to the next so it becomes totally confusing which character is talking. None of the characters are evoking sympathy in me . Like a previous reviewer I am deeply suspicious that the author was under contract to produce a book and cobbled
This load of trite drivel together. I am so disappointed as I know she can write so much better. $15 down the drain.
