Finished this tonight. I was intrigued by the theme, fortune telling, as there are a couple fortune tellers who set up shop relatively near my home and I found the cover really pretty as well. The mystery was fine. An interesting intrigue involving several red herrings.
My issue was that I absolutely could not relate to main character, Sunny. She just seemed like a stereotypical spoiled rich girl and on top of that she acted very immaturely . Put her together with a male lead, who didn’t act much more mature than her, and I just couldn’t connect. The name calling and temper tantrums were just really unattractive.
Maybe I’m just too old to relate??
Couldn’t sleep last night and decided to pull a few more books off of my Kindle. The first was Breathless by Louise Marley. There was a lot to like about this, a strong, interesting lead character, well built back story and setting. The plot involving Greg, Will, Zac and Drew ticks along at a nice pace. I found a couple of the characters actions and reactions off putting or odd. On the whole, a fun, quick romance with a dash of mystery thrown in to the mix.
This book is 4th in a series and I did not read 1 through 3, so I hesitate to review because perhaps my thoughts are influenced by that fact.
I found the murder mystery plot interesting, especially the connections to the past and the archaeology aspects that were involved. Other than that, I really didn’t connect to the characters and found some of parts a little heavy handed. Perhaps I would have gotten more out of it, if I read the series in order.
