ARC Review: Tough Justice: Countdown (Part 1 of 8) (Carla Cassidy)

Hmmm … I wonder if it’s because I’m not used to this format (reading ‘serials‘) or if it’s because I didn’t read the first series, I wasn’t heavily impressed. The latter was my fault, when I clicked that “Read Now” button on Netgalley, I didn’t check out the release information. In any case, I felt like I kept missing background information that made me care for the main characters. Lara referred to an undercover case, or the fact that she gave away her baby for adoption … and my only reaction was, “huh?”

Also I was expecting a turn-the-page quick action-suspense because the Prologoe sort of alluded that … I thought there would be more threatening letters and bombs but the pace seemed to slow down (as Lara also pondered about the personal stuffs) and that bored me to tears.

Maybe this kind of storytelling format — divide story into parts — is simply not for me *shrugs*
