it was ok

I got a GC for Barnes & Noble at Christmas. Since B&N's prices are SO much higher than Amazon, I used that opportunity to not use my Wish List and just searched around for anything that looked interesting. This book is one of the products of that trip. I'm not a tea drinker by any means. Even though I live in the South, I'm not even a sweet tea drinker. Still, I thought this might be a cute little fluffy story. But it was SO boring! The chapters varied wildly in length. Some of them didn't have any point to them at all. They didn't advance the story at all. This story just seemed so off in so many places. There were places where the characters made some sort of revelation, but they either didn't explain how they made that leap or they didn't explain what the actual revelation was, so a lot of the story didn't make sense at all. This one was so bad, that the author's on my "Don't Read" list. As opposed to the books that I think are bad just in a way that doesn't appeal to me or I just didn't get, this one was bad in that it was badly written and constructed. Ug, ug, ug
