Terribly Disappointing

I loved the first book. The second book was okay. The El Amante Turco is bad. The first half is a rehash of the past two books. The new material is boring, like an uninteresting soap opera. I made it to chapter six (there are a total of nine). I am giving up on it. I am no longer interested in what happens. Sorry, but at least I enjoyed her first book.
