Carol's Reviews > The Rumor
Received an ARC as a Random House Reader's Circle giveaway. I really liked this mystery-suspense book but with some reservations. The twists and turns were good, but it was too slow getting started. The ARC had spelling issues and a bunch of bad word-division decisions at ends of lines, like "goo-dbye", but those will hopefully be ironed out in the regular edition. A more subtle problem was the tone in some places. Apparently the book was originally published and set in the UK, and it's been changed to a US setting for the American edition. It still has a sometimes jarring British "feel", though - words, phrasing and personal names that aren't quite what we'd choose here.
