3.0 out of 5 stars A dull read, 11 Jan. 2014

This review is from: Something Like Love (Kindle Edition)
First book I'd read from this author. I was disappointed in it - the characters are shallow and 2-dimensional, the plot thin and predictable. I couldn't really believe in it, people behaved in ways that weren't credible. The problem with 'real life' stories is that real life is essentially boring. To lift a story out of the boredom things need to happen, and in this book they didn't. One character (Angela) is caught with her fingers in the till and the police take her away. She's got nothing to do with the plot and I felt her storyline had been added at the last moment to try and inject a bit of interest in a dull plotline. It didn't, because we didn't care much about her, she was such a minor character, and what she did had no bearing on the main characters or their story. There was a paragraph near the end where the writer suddenly switched from past to present tense. I know why she did this, but it wasn't marked out with asterisks or a blank line top & bottom, it just happened without warning and therefore jolted.
