First I would like to say that for a first novel, this was really pretty good. It starts a bit slow, and there were several places in the beginning I really wanted an editors red pen. I blame that on my OCD literary heart. Now for the good news! The story became much more captivating as I continued to read. Also good was that the holes in the story became less and less. I will definitely be looking forward to reading more from this author, and can't wait to see how she matures as a writer.
