I really don't like this author's writing style, but I like the characters in this series. I've seen some of the movies that have been made from Meg Cabot's books and I have to say they are definitely better than the books, which is weird. At first I thought maybe she was British and I just didn't 'get' her writing style. That's not the case. She's an American. She uses far too many dashes in her writing -- something I'm not really too keen on to begin with ever since I decided when I was in college I'd major in English and then Broadcasting -- to make me happy.

Isn't that hard to read? Why separate the sentence like that??!! That whole "to make me happy" thing to finish the sentence ... grrrr ... by the time I read all that was between the dashes I have forgotten how the sentence even started!

I read the second book in the series (Size 14 Isn't Fat Either) before I read this one. I'm not sure if I'll read the third Heather Wells Mystery or not. Depends on how desperate I get, probably.
