Unfortunately I had to call it quits on this one at 60%. I say unfortunately because the plot itself was really interesting. Alas the execution of said plot was lacking.
The writing just didn’t flow for me. Way too many unnecessary details…
“With the blood now back in her legs she headed for the door. Passing through the arched doorway she strolled to the open corridor behind the grand staircases, stopping once to gawk out the windows. The sky had transformed into a dark grayish-black, reminding her of the storms she’d seen as a kid before a tornado hit.”
Everything was described to the nth degree. The heroine couldn’t just bump into a chair, she had to bump into an antique high back Victorian chair.
Alas, it just became too distracting for me to ignore.
