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.

Taking Charge - Mandy Baggot The characters are generally likeable, but everything in this book moves at such a frantic pace. Realistically, Robyn wouldn't be able to turn around a roadhouse and manage a hockey team and reconcile with her father and plan a wedding all at the same time. The quick attitude changes were too abrupt and seemed to have no basis or reason: Nancy became helpful and friendly between one visit and the next, and the twins suddenly started behaving themselves. As for the mystery, I figured out the truth early on when it was mentioned that Brad's father handled the investigation. Still, it was a quick read, and it kept my attention.
