I got Crash into Me from paperbackwap.com on the recommendation of Dear Author reviewer Jane whose taste is usally pretty good. I carried this book with me for days, and struggled to finish it. Thank goodness it was free. I finally finished this weekend while having a pedicure in Studio City. Two other women were reading in the nail shop, and I tried not to covet their interest in their own books as I people watched, and clock watched, and traffic watched.
Some books can cross genres without missing a beat. This is not one of them. It tried to hard to be both a suspenseful mystery and a romance, but both were only lukewarm. Many reviewers seemed to be swept away by the descriptions of sunny Southern California. Living in sunny SoCal, that kind of description is not enough to transport me to another world. And this book, certainly didn’t.
