I didn't finish this book - Portia really annoyed me and I couldn't even warm to her in a love to hate her kind of way. I just wanted to smack her and tell her to get over herself.
However... that particular character aside - this is very typical Katie MacAlister and bound to be a hit with any fan!
The main character, Portia, was annoying. Yes, I get it. She's a scientist. She's a skeptic. So it takes her a while before she'll admit that anything paranormal is going on. But come on! In my opinion she waited WAY too long to believe, which cause me to not believe in her character. But once she does believe, she falls into it all the way, which seemed to contradictory to how hard she tried not to believe in the beginning. So that kinda spoiled the book for me and I didn't enjoy it as much as I wanted to.
Good book! Portia, the heroine, spends a little too long denying the obvious. Once you get past that it's a good, quick read!
Entertaining Katie McAllister fare. The main character, Portia, is not terribly believable though. She does a complete personality 180 as soon as she meets the yummy hero, Theo.
However, for a fluff romance, it's fun.
Okay, I have a confession to make. I'm a HUGE fan of this series. I am a huge fan of the author as well. She always writes with humor, but I believe that the opening to this book was by far my favorite. I loved the premise of the book. I enjoyed the friendship shared between two characters (Portia and her best friend she took the trip with) who have such vastly different worldviews. The only thing that irked me to know end, is that after having concluded the story (which involves a well written mystery), she throws another mystery at us. I have no idea if she is setting up another book or if she's just messing with our minds. My husband insists if I read it a couple or more times I could probably figure it out...but I don't reread books overly much. When I do, I have to wait some time in between. But who knows, maybe you can. And maybe you can post me back and help me to solve that last teaser she threw at us...And no, I can't tell you what it is either. =)
