My Rating: 3 1/2 stars
My Review: I received a copy of these books in exchange for an honest review.
Each of these serials are pretty short, with the first four together being the length of a full length novel. I found the author's writing style to be very confusing to me. As it is written, there are so many extraneous thoughts in the writing from each of the character's point of view that I'm not sure how they can keep it all in. It's almost like reading the thoughts of an ADHD rabbit.
Once you get past all of the extraneous stuff, and get down to the story, it's pretty good. Molly is grieving for her murdered sister. Her friends send her out on a speed dating evening where afterwards she find a flatted penny, just like the one she has from her sister. She is convinced it is from one of the speed daters, and is determined to find out which one, by dating them all.
Its a fun serial, if you want to read it, just don't expect much substance.
