To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I had just finished reading a wonderful series by a really GOOD author (who chooses to offer his excellent books on Kindle Unlimited)... and I thought I would give Ms Dams one last chance. This book is just a waste of time and certainly not well thought-out. The endless, ENDLESS speculation is exhausting and abysmally boring. The improbable plot is just annoying. And, it's difficult to find the protagonist likeable... she has endless hours with no actual obligations and yet she hasn't seen her godson - much less offered to relieve the overworked grandmother and mother of this toddler - for so long that she needs to see photos to know what the child looks like. No wonder she's so bored, and boring. And lazy, self-absorbed. I may skip to the last chapter to see who murdered the first Evil Head-of-Department, but I have wasted enough of my time on this author.
It was slow, but fair, until the end. I'm not a fan of mysteries that rely on confession to reach the conclusion. And the plot line about budget shortfalls just sort of evaporated. The writing was good, but the story was about half baked.
