The 21st Century Challenge
2001 = Harmless Error by Kate Donovan (published Oct 2001):
It took me weeks to finish this book. I started it thinking it would be a romantic comedy but it opened with the trial of a child’s murder. The hero was overbearing. I realize this was an older book, but the way the hero’s mentor and others talked about the heroine was off putting. The heroine was judgmental and constantly jumped to conclusions. It didn’t help matters that the plot was so convoluted and eye roll inducing. I should have DNF’d but despite not buying into the romance I wanted to see how the “mystery” plot resolved. There were a few parts where I had hoped the book would get better, but they never lasted. Overall I wanted my time back and am mad at myself for having kept reading instead of just flipping to the end. Very disappointing.
