I enjoyed the first book in the series and thought I'd buy the second book to see how things progressed. I'm disappointed so far. I've only gotten half-way through and now regret the purchase.
I wish that the author did some more editing and fixed some mistakes that I noticed early on, such as writing 'rode' instead of 'road' or referencing Duncan when it was supposed to be Nathan in that particular scene. The characters haven't really evolved much since the last book except to have much more angst than is healthy.
Though I haven't finished the book yet, I feel like my interests would have stopped by now, but because I actually paid money for this, I feel obiligated to finish it.
Perhaps with editing and much more polish, it would be worth it, but as it stands, wish it were free like the first book because I regret paying money for this.
I wanted to read the story because it took place in an area I'm familiar with. But I couldn't get into the writing and had to suspend my disbelief of someone graduating the College of William and Mary with a 4.0 GPA, which is possible, but extremely difficult. Also, I don't think the college has a pre-law degree, at least they didn't when I went there.
It just seemed too cookie-cutter for me for the first chapter. Also, living in Wakefield but commuting to Newport News for a job in retail isn't very economical or realistic. Those small things kind of turned me off the story.
