Defying grammar 'for effect' must stop.
I loved Madelyn Alt from the beginning. I am invested in the characters but bewildered by a 'third novel curse'! Look at my other reviews. I couldn't rave enough about the first and second novels of other authors. Out of nowhere, something about their style grates on my nerves and in Madelyn's case; I am uncomfortable and annoyed with the first forty pages of every story. Then it becomes captivating, keeping my assessment from sinking lower than three stars.
I regret reporting, vocabulary like "kinda sorta" is no longer cute. A good writer doesn't misspell words or defy punctuation to emphasize dialogue, like shoving a period after one word to convey an angry staccato, or Tara's irritating "wouldja". A book versus a movie should let us envision characters! I nearly threw the book against a wall when she wrote "ruh roh" instead of "oh oh"! I lost considerable respect for this author from that 'Scooby Doo' nonsense alone! Comprehending the quote did nothing to alleviate feeling it's the last straw, of another talented author who has taken too many liberties. I beg her to raise the writing back to the calibre she's capable of. Misused grammar is a turnoff.
Accosting an arguing couple was unrealistic and seeking a lost cell at night, contrived. The rest of the story was excellent. I love Marcus' perseverance, Maggie prohibiting any more of her mother's appointments, and always adore Liss and Steff just for appearing on a page. We lacked information about the excavated room but it made a fantastic plot, like the ghost. Town history in the series, from the Protestant minister this time and otherwise by Marion, is always integral and enjoyable. Martha Brooks once taught me: "Don't tell a story. SHOW a story"! It is the most valuable tip there is. by C. Riedel
