Not As Good As Others By Her
on 4 March 2014
I didn't like this one as much as others I've read by her. My favourites were the Voodoo ones but she seems to have packed those in after only two which is a shame. In this one Jolie's fella' has disappeared and to add insult to injury he's also nicked her car !! So she's attempting to find out where both are and to keep her head above water paying her bills and working at the same time. For fun she joins a new pal who crashes upscale parties...
There were some mistakes in it which grated for me, too. I've never been able to figure out myself if missing person's reports has an apostrophe or not and the author here is as confused as sometimes she does and then she doesn't. 'My savings is gone' stood out for me as an "ouch" moment as did tom used in place of torn !!
Liked was used where it should be like and then this line "I'll him that his advice" I assume lost tell and "out a limb" lost on ? I was also lost at the word 'overage'. I'm still wondering what was meant there-perhaps coverage or it's an Americanism I've never heard of before. I didn't understand either why Gary wouldn't need shoes towards the end-baffled by that.
As a rule I do enjoy her books, though, and as this is a prequel to a new series featuring a couple of characters from this story I will take a look at the first in that series for sure at some point.
