Top critical review

A very good story BUT, also very disjointed where the writer jumps from one subject to another instead of starting a new chapter or even given an emboldened heading. i.e., “The following day, or later that evening”. I found myself not being able to get the gist of the story in places as the story did not flow. I had to keep turning back as when I turned the page, we were on a completely different subject.
This is just 1 of many examples, where Millie was in Stratford Christmas shopping with her mother. I turned the page to “Would you like some gravy” thinking I had turned 2 pages at once I looked back, but no, I hadn’t, it was Christmas day.
It was constantly like this throughout the book which I found to be very misleading and at times, hard to follow until I realised the author had jumped to another part of the story. Sadly, I shall not be buying any more of her books to read as you never know where you are up to as lack of Chapters when changing to another part of the story.
I also think that she should have done some homework on dancing instead of just saying she/he took a back step or sidestep. It would have been better to make no reference to it at all as it was clear that she didn’t know anything about dancing.
It also had not been proof read very well as there were a few spelling mistakes/ typos, which you do not expect to find in a book.
A great pity as the story was good, but the layout poor.
