This review is from: One Glass Is Never Enough - full length romance novel (Kindle Edition)
If anybody needs an example of how not to write a novel this would be it. The characters have no voice (I still cannot remember who is who), point of view jumps all over the place - at one point its the dog! Editing clearly didn't happen. The woman who - I think maybe - is supposed the main character is an alcoholic, a narky, self important little girl who has no compassion, no conscience and is unlikable from start to finish. All of the characters just sail through the book without any character development - they are as shallow and self absorbed as they were in the beginning. The author seems to think that it is enough to throw a catastrophe at a character and then let it peter out to create tension. It isn't. She clearly has lost grip of any reality you and I live in when she scathingly slates women wearing a size 16, presents us with a notion that cheating on your partner is a good way of starting a relationship and makes two of her main characters addicts (one tablets, the other drink) and they just 'cut down' a bit. No harm done really. Infuriatingly unrealistic and a slap in the face of anybody who has ever had to go through any of the 'problems' her characters encounter. And none of them have any emotional impact - boring to say the least.
Conclusion: An example of the worst kind of writing, don't bother wasting your time.

That's an awful lot to write just for 1 star!
