I really wanted to like this story, based on the back cover copy. What I got was a book that dragged painfully slowly through the first half, then got better in the second half and raced to the conclusion, leaving ends loose and me feeling cheated that I'd spent $10 for this Kindle book. Emma refused to stand up for herself when all the crazy little incidents continued escalating to real threats, which I just don't understand. Furthermore, the reason revealed for all the threats and the punishment for those threats do not make sense, given the seriousness of everything that occurred. This story doesn't match the caliber of the author's earlier books. What a shame.
