Do you ever wonder if you read the same book as others are talking about? I read a book the Wall Street Journal called, “A novel of love, lies, and deceit.”
I’ll agree to lies and deceit, but love? Nope, not when spouses are lying throughout their marriage about important things, and cheating with someone outside the marriage. I started out liking the heroine, but by the end, I loathed her, and just skimmed it to find out the answer to the mystery.
And even that was so lame and ridiculous, I ranted to Wizard for a solid ten minutes.
Sigh. I guess people really loved this book, and to each his own. But for me, this was a lot of buildup, creating an illusion of mystery and possible danger…and it all turned out to be self-inflicted misery.
In good news, I’ve been listening to a string of audio books I enjoyed by Elin Hilderbrand, and now I’m listening to some books by Nora Roberts. I just need to find a good Kindle book to read that doesn’t make me ranty!
