The Detective's Daughter - Book Review

Where do I start?


Sorry, but I can't even be bothered to find the picture of the book to put here.


Cons

  • Too many sections put in to act as dialogues from the past which really never helped in the solving of the crime or advancing of the story and were confusing as to who they were between.
  • She killed off a character that should have been kept in to make more choice as to who the murderer could be.
  • Having her main female character end up using similar language to the main male character, when they had started off so different, was strange.
  • Jumped about too much from person to person and time to time.
  • The behaviour, thought and speech of the characters was not consistent.
  • In some instances I was sure she had one character suddenly know something that only a different character had known or talked about.
  • Seemed like it was not well edited.
  • Made me wonder when it was ever going to end.
  • Then when it did end, it didn't end!  Yes, doesn't make sense does it?


Pros

  • There was not an actual sex scene, THANK YOU.
  • There was a good story & idea behind it all but the writing of the book ruined it.
  • It was a free ebook.


I will not be adding it to my Shelfari Bookshelf, 
but I have a feeling I will not forget it.
