While all reviews that gave this book a medium to low rating said basically the same thing about the quality of the story & writing, I didn't see where anyone mentions the quality of the copy editing.
Have we gotten to the point that poor editing, even in expensive books by well known authors, is so common that it's acceptable? Shoddy work is now so expected that it's no longer even mentioned, let alone unacceptable. Sorry, I am 'old school', I want what I paid for, a quality product.
I will no longer be giving my money for Nora Roberts or JD Robb books. As a long time fan of both, especially JD Robb, I am equally mad & sad.
