For me, I can tell if a book is good by how long it takes me to read it. Well, I had to renew this one, because I've been reading it for a couple of weeks and I'm still not done. I don't like leaving a book unfinished, so I will finish it, but...Ugh! The storyline jumps all over the place and like someone else said, the characters aren't realistic at all. I read the first Ali Reynolds book and thought it was just okay and wanted to give Jance another chance, but nope. This will be the last one.
