Loren's eLiterate

I like all sorts of genres, and I love a good series. However, I dislike books that portion the story out to readers in a serialized fashion over several volumes, and I refuse to buy them.

'Twas the Night after Christmas  - Sabrina Jeffries I'd been looking forward to reading Devenport's story since the earlier books of the series, but I was disappointed in this. The primary reason for my disappointment was Camilla. I haven't read a more annoying heroine in quite some time. Camilla's insistent meddling in things that were none of her business was the basis of the plot, but I found her behavior irritating, and I was surprised she wasn't sacked on the spot for some of her shenanigans. Her unwavering belief that she knew better than everyone about everything was grating, and the miraculous discovery of her long-lost mother (an earl's daughter, no less!) was eye-rolling.

I gave it two stars only because I liked the character of Devenport. Otherwise, this would be a one-star book.
