I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
Well, that was just... bad. Really bad.
I've been seeing this author's SP books around for ages, but never tried them because, SPA. But when this book was announced by Kensington, I figured this was a good time to give her writing a go, knowing there'd be professional editing behind it. It had elements I knew I'd enjoy: psychics, ghosts, vintage clothing and cats. Sadly, it didn't have any strong story-telling behind it.
Mostly, the book felt like as though the author was making it up as she went along. Dialog was choppy, it felt unnatural, and was often repetitive or contradictory. Or both. The plot was just weird - and not in a good, twisty way. There were holes - big holes that went right through key parts of the plot.
I liked the psychic cat - except for her name (Wind Song???) but the cat was nowhere near enough to cover up the rest of the book's shortcomings. This is one for the give away box.
