My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I am beginning to realise that this author has a decent approach, but is inconsistent with style.
I am fairly sure that with a it more work on staying in a consistent style and language, and a little bit further conflict for characters, she could easily develop to a solid 4, or even 5 star writer.
She's playing safe, and it is annoying. I grade this read, a 3 star, could try harder. I keep reading, and praying at some point she will pick up the gauntlet and run with it.
