I Read Words Other People Write

UF, UF, UF. PNR, HR, Sci-Fi, finding a bit more YA that I enjoy. Mystery, crime, detective shit. Have recently figured out I'm not really a contemporary romance gal. I like smut but am not really into erotica. Oh, did I mention UF?

Tough one to review, this one.  I liked the story, the characters and they mystery but I think it was too fat.  Could have been much leaner.  I have the same problem I had with Toby in the 1st book - she seems too young for her supposed age.  There's a lot of repetition as some other reviewers have noted.  Toby is constantly surprised at how she's legitimately sorry for other people. 

 

"I'm sorry," I said.  And I meant it. 

 

Those lines are everywhere in this book!  The mystery was a little over-the-top and I pretty much had the killer figured out about halfway in.  

But I so want to know more about Toby's gifts and her mother.  There's another tiny mention of her mom towards the end of the book so I'll sign up for book three, but I'm not rushing to get it.
