F the style elements because the story is not dark or gritty Add to this theact that the mystery itself is airly easy to ollow and you have an easy comfortable read that would work even in situations where your attention might Pirates, Ships, and Sailors freuently be dragged elsewhere while reading Though there s nothing really surprising hereor a seasoned mystery Reader I Have No Complaints I have no complaints the plotting no Loose Ends Nor Any Unbelievable Twists For Example So Since ends nor any unbelievable twists or example so since majority of the story is the mystery that s a good thingProbably the biggest issue I had with the book though is the writing style The dialogue is War Made New: Technology, Warfare, and the Course of History: 1500 to Today fine but the narration seemsilled with a lot of extraneous details throughout Details can be good but too often here I A Boy in Winter found myself being pulled out of the story because of it Is it necessaryor example to comment about a character absently scratching his butt before taking a sip of his coffee It certainly wasn t bad enough that I couldn t get back into the story but still And then where details are a big plus ahem in the romantic scenes the author decided to leave much to the imagination most of the time Maybe that s a personal preference thing but it certainly left me wantingAs Frost at Midnight far as the characters and their romance are concernedor the most part I enjoyed them They make a good pair because they are similar in many ways While such similarity can post problems Princess Baby, Night-Night from a perspective standpoint the author does an excellent job keeping thisrom becoming a problem There are a The Pentagon Papers: Making History at the Washington Post few decisions the author makes that some readers may uestion though For example almost rightrom the start Mack seems rather open with Brantley about the Improbable Destinies: Fate, Chance, and the Future of Evolution facts of the case But this makes a certain amount of sense if one considers the location and situation There are aew other things like this in the book but if you try not to let your television policing experience interfere with the story and just go with it it will be On a Cold Road: Tales of Adventure in Canadian Rock for the better It shouldn t take long in reading the bookor you to understand where the title of the novel comes rom and honestly this behavior in Brantley seems a touch overdramatized at times but that s really the only thing I can say bad about either OF THEM AS CHARACTERS AS I MENTIONED BEFORE THE them as characters As I mentioned before the plays a distant second iddle to the mystery and like the mystery the romantic arc is also airly uncomplicated All of the drama in their uickly ormed relationship comes directly Nini from the events surrounding the investigation and their reactions to it That being said I do wish the author had taken time to expand this part of the story line someAs a whole Flight or Fight is a decent mystery encasing a uick romance that is worth a read particularly if you like things to be straightforward While you might be tempted to gloss over some of the details that don t pertain to the case andrankly it s okay if you do because there are a lot of them if you pay attention to the important stuff your inner gumshoe will appreciate the story The author generously provided me a complimentary copy of Flight or Fight in exchange I Love My Dad (Disney Princess) for thisair and honest reviewFollow Me Reviews by Tammy Kim Facebook Twitte.
