Book #51: Missing Mom

The Times described this novel as ‘A brilliant unmissable novel’. It turns out that I could’ve afforded to miss this one. It was boring, dull and lifeless. Nikki Eaton was plain self-centered. The story lacked an emotional impact. The protagonist bored me to tears. I’m sorry I even opened the book.

Almost every character is described as having “moistly glittering eyes”. I mean, WHAT? Was I reading a manga?

Then came this: “…I ran for my life; I mean, my car.” It was used twice!

To make this review even shorter, the story didn’t move me in any shape or form, it was repetitive, there was nothing redeeming about it, and I won’t be reading any more books from this author.

A Summer Affair by Elin Hilderbrand. I am on a reading spree lately, so don’t be alarmed if I post more than the intended reviews this week. 🙂
