I hate not finishing a book but I've been "reading" this book for 4 months now and I haven't even had the desire to pick it back up and see how it ends. I made it a little less than halfway through and I'm just not interested in the plot at all. I feel like with a good cozy mystery, if the mystery is good, I can read about any type of theme - the theme here being the spa/beauty aspect. If done right, not a big deal. But I was just bored out of my mind. The two main characters who are supposed to have this love story haven't even met up halfway through. The other small romance seemed really immature and also uninteresting, and I found that I really didn't care "whodunnit".
One of the biggest turn offs for me too is that it wasn't just a cozy mystery. It's Christian fiction. I'm just not a religious person at all and to be bombarded with that many mentions of religion, God, beliefs, etc - It's just overwhelming for someone who doesn't feel the same way. It was way too preachy for me and really prevented me from making any connection to the MC.
After 4 months, I called it quits. Not worth wasting my time on something I'm not enjoying at all.
