To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I read the first book in this series a couple of years ago. While not outstanding, it was good enough to keep me coming back for more. But this is my last Haley Randolph book. What was funny and sarcastic in the first book has grown both old and boring. Haley has totally lost her charm - she is unlikable and apprently unable or unwilling to mature. The plotline is telegraphed so blatantly a third grader could see where the story is headed, though it takes Haley 20 pages to do so. The cleverness of the first book is gone. This Stephanie Plum wannabe is no Stepahnie Plum.
