1.0 out of 5 stars A waste of time, 2 Mar. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Halfway to the Grave: A Night Huntress Novel (Mass Market Paperback)
I bought this book on the basis of other reviews and feel badly misled. It is poorly written exacerbated by the belief the author's belief that she can use English slang, the misue of 'luv' and 'quid' being particularly annoying. The heroine's sad chilhood is restated repeatedly, just in case we didn't get how it screwed her up the first time we read it. The storyline is held together by a series of unbelievable coincidences and its main purpose appears to be to cobble together a series of descriptions of sexual encounters which I skipped after the first couple. This is a book I would advise you to avoid even if you are an admirer of this genre. If you only read this type of book for the sex scenes you might enjoy it but as I found them intrusive to the storyline and skipped most of them I cannot comment on how well or how badly written they are.

"...exacerbated by the belief the author's belief that she can use English slang, the misue of 'luv' and 'quid' being particularly annoying." I agree entirely that this is a real drawback for many American books set in England. It's such a shame, as it can ruin an otherwise good book.
