I'm a Jane Green fan but this book disappointed me. It was boring. The characters were rather flat in personality, the plot and character actions seemed contrived and too many things just happened to fall into place.

I got the idea that she was thinking "hey, I'm the writer" so I can put this piece here and this piece right next to it and force them to fit together. Nope.

Not to mention, and very major pet peave of mine, is that since she is writing about Americans and putting an American "voice" with the story then she needs to have the "lingo" correct. It was very weird to hear the British terminology she used and was rather out of place. As an editor myself, I'm thinking her editors should have caught that disparity.

Beach Road was such a treat that I was expecting a whole lot more from her.
