Why this book?:
I was browsing for books I could remove from my collection. I started reading it (at one time I really enjoyed the Fortunes, although there are too many of them now for me to really keep up), but had to go, so it went back to the shelf. After I finished Doggone, I went looking again and decided to finish it.
It started pretty easily, the writing itself was fine.
But in the long run, I didn't care for this one. I couldn't really connect with either character; they both annoyed me. Christopher with his flirty and 'but I'm a hard worker just misunderstood' attitude. And Kinsley with her 'I'm pulling myself up and making good for myself, but this means I must be never have fun and must always be suspicious.' And the anti-bullying bit felt fake. Just words, not enough genuine emotion.
Anyway, a bit disappointing.
