Best Of The Series So Far
on 29 March 2017
The fourth in this series and the best so far for me AND with the fewest mistakes. Had to be 5*. I really enjoyed it and it was over far too fast !! In the third I had been fed up and a bit worn down by the mistakes and this one was a little make-or-break for me so I'm pleased there's been such a great improvement in the presentation because the stories are really interesting. I like all the characters, too, though I'm hoping "Hamish" isn't going to be sticking around for long !! Mike the Fireman is back, thankfully. I like him a great deal and I adore Mary, her values and her sense of humour. I enjoyed the additional story of the pastor running alongside the main case here as well.
I did think showbiz is usually the one word only and this sentence lost a couple of words-"She told him she was going in to his employer and get him canned". At one point she refers to a dozen dishes that used to be cups and saucers and that made no sense to me, there were a couple of apostrophes missed. The following sentence illustrates perfectly how missing one little word (he) totally alters the sentence and the whole meaning. I read and re-read it a few times till I realised what it was supposed to be saying !! "My son met the Chief first and put the fear of God into him. Did our family a big favor"......see the difference ?
Impassable was written as impassible, in was superfluous here-"She stood and knelt down in next to him" yet we lost the here-"....so it was perfect solution for everyone" and here-"...and one of most handsome faces she'd ever seen".
However, trust me when I say that this amount of errors is a huge progression and I found it clearly noticeable and as long as things are heading in the right direction I'll most definitely be sticking with this series.
