To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Each book was written so it was a stand alone book. If you read them as a series you found right away that in 1 book the best friend boyfriends name was Chris then it was Dom. Then the main characters boyfriend sold his house and moved in her house. Next thing you know he's back at his house. Then you have 2 people riding in the same car together, but leaving in their own car even when they left 1 so they would let others think she was home or he was at her house. Things like that. It may not bother others, but I hate reading that. If a writer can't keep up with her story line or the proof reader can't the book becomes unglued. This is the first time I've read this writer's books I can't see me buying more or recommending this writer. I also wasn't crazy about all the names starting with the same letter when she had so much trouble keeping her story on track.
I finished books 7 -9 today, I loved them. The tone was a little darker in the the last 3 books. But the stories were just as good. History can be quite ugly when you peel away the layers. I would be interested in hearing how the subject you write about comes up! I hope there will be more books!
