Read in January, 2012

I wanted something light and entertaining to read, and took advantage of Kindle's lending library to check this book out. Though the idea is interesting - what would happen if you could suddenly read people's thoughts - the concept is weighed down with poor characterization, stereotypical characters and a horrendous lack of editing. It reads as if someone used spell check and decided that was sufficient editing.

I got about a third of the way through this book before I gave up. I had no idea who the main character was. Her relationships with her family were barely sketched in, and I have no idea what motivates this character. I was also irritated by her anger at her husband over another woman being interested in him even though he did not reciprocate, while she's being swoony over the police officer.

I remember reading a considerable amount of mommy mysteries about a decade ago so it is not as though I object to the genre, but there are much better examples of this particular type available. Light and entertaining doesn't have to mean brainless.
