I very much enjoyed A Room Swept White. I found myself guessing the entire time, and did not find the plot twists predictable. The plot was engaging, and I found the story-line interesting.

On the other hand, this book portrays some annoyingly unrealistic characters. Fliss, the main character, jumps between being rather moronic and hysterical to being smart and level-headed throughout the book. Her character is all over the place.

Fliss's main love interest for the majority of the novel refuses to allow himself to be endearing to either her or the reader. I couldn't understand what Fliss was interested in, because this guy was clearly a loser. I understand why the author wrote him like that, but I would have preferred a little more effort on her point. The author needn't be so transparent.

I wish the author spent as much time creating strong characters as she did with putting together a good story. If she did, this book would have been much better.
