Usually Kitty Thomas' characters drive me crazy in many unexpected ways, and I mean that in the most insanely good way possible, but here I felt like they all were missing to deliver their charm and charisma. Was there someone I hated in particular? Someone I liked the most? A character at least I sympathized with? I'm afraid I honestly couldn't find any kind of attachment or feel a sort of sympathy for anyone. Sometimes their actions seemed rushed and so was the writing. Too bad because the story was there, but I feel like a bit of background more to emphasise the curse and a better character development would have been helpful to build a stronger connection with the reader.
This, of course, won't stop me from reading Kitty Thomas' next releases. I perfectly know this author can amaze me and make my mind wander over and over for days (if not weeks) with her stories. Unfortunately this book just didn't have the desired effect on me.
