Online reviews are all over the place on this first novel by P. J. Alderman, but for the low price of the Kindle edition I couldn't pass it by. When I started reading it last night, I was too sleepy to read more than the first chapter, but not too sleepy to notice that the author had used the word "bobble"--when I'm pretty sure she meant "bauble"--only eight paragraphs in.
I find little bobbles like that disruptive because they take my focus away from the story and put it on the words instead. Once I got back into the story, though, it held my interest. In fact, I'm looking forward to reading more of it in a little while when I sit down with my Kindle and a bowl of hot, homemade soup.
