did not like it
bookshelves: paranormal-pnr, couldnt-finish, overrated
Read from April 24 to 25, 2011

Yeah I had to stop reading this. I got about 30% into the book & couldn't take all of the lamenting about Chance again. Then add Jesse to the mix.

I think Jesse is fairly boring & such an obvious plot device to add some tension & Corine's inner dialog about him, her potential feelings.... It was like shampoo, lather, rinse & repeat.

The plot itself, could be interesting but BD (the 1st book) was really such a hot mess of action & emo inner dialog - Corine was not wrong when she referred to their crew at the beginning of this book as the Scooby Gang. That's exactly what I thought of them in the last book too. A talking dog, lots of snacks & food, running around like chickens without heads but as luck would have it - they get to solve the mystery. I guess AA is trying to paint a modern day version of The Gang? Truth be told though, I was never a huge fan of the Scooby's. I used to watch them if I was bored & nothing else was on.

It just didn't compel me. So much to read, I have to give it a DNR.
