Just awful Good ear for dialogue, but this plot was hilariously unlikely to day the least, and I don t mean funny I did read the whole thing, thinking I must be missing something since had the nerve to charge for it I was wrong One of the worst pieces of drivel I ve ever read Save yourself don t waste your time like I did My rating NEGATIVE stars.
OK, let s get the negative stuff out of the way.
The author would have been well served by hiring a professional editor to comb through this novel before she published it Almost from the first page, the reader is hit with a torrent of typos, grammatical and punctuation errors, inexplicable use of italics, and other mistakes These seem to indicate she was in a hurry to upload the book to before she gave it a thorough scrubbing These errors also detracted from my enjoyment of the novel, to the point I gave up reading it, for the time being, after seven or eight chapters.
This is a shame, because even though some aspects of the plot were implausible I didn t quite understand how the MC could follow police around a crime scene at a nursing home without anyone batting any eye , I found much of it engaging and downright cha Finn Travels To South West Florida Expecting To Find Heat, Sand, And Gangs Of Old People What She Finds Are Dead Bodies, A Kidnapping, The Mob And A Certain Jewish Cuban Detective That She Has Developed A School Girls Crush OnIt S Not Long Before She S Engulfed In Events That Will Either Destroy Her Or Prove To Her That It S Never Too Late To Begin Again And That Life Isn ↠´ Engulfed Þ Download by õ Kathleen Cosgrove T Over Until It IsThis Book Is Filled With Fun And Unforgettable Characters And Situations That Never Leave A Dull Moment From Page One To Epilogue Just another author who has no clue about the correct use of pronouns Book needed some serious proofreading.
Move over Janet Evanovitch Kathleen Cosgrove s debut novel Engulfed will have you laughing and rooting for poor beleaguered Maggie Finn as she finds herself neck deep in murder and some really strange characters All she came to Florida for was to move her parents into a retirement village Instead she finds herself a murder target Her characters are well developed, and each is unique If you enjoy realistic situational humor, and a good plot, this is the book to get.
This is a great and funny read The main character, Maggie, is so adorable and oh at the stuff she gets herself in to She has some great friends who help along the way I love Zig and his mom, Dorothy old school enchantress The underlying attraction between Maggie and Detective Nathan Gonzales is refreshing Kathleen Cosgrove has done an exceptional job with this story which is both intriguing and entertaining I look forward to reading the sequel, Entangled.
È Engulfed Ê Attended a local library event where this author was participating so I had to pick it up and just see what it was all about While there is no doubt editing and formatting would go a long way to helping this book, the errors are a distraction, I laughed and snorted at enough of the story to read another by this author If this is a first book, then yeah there is promise for improvement in the next book.
This was another bumbling female detective Sort of like a later in life Janet Evanovich book when Stephanie gets to mid 50s Could be very funny at times but lots of editing errors and a general feeling that the main character is somewhat pathetic I wouldn t want to hang out with her, I d avoid her.
This book is funny This author and title were mentioned in another book, MAD LIBRARIAN Engulfed was touted as funny, and that is no joke No pun intended I had never read Kathleen Cosgrove before, sure happy I took the chance.
Great characters, a plot so twisted you don t know whodunit until the end, and descriptions of the Gulf weather so spot on you can feel the humidity rolling off the pages Can t wait to dive into Entangled.
Not bad, but would benefit from polishing.
