The Bloody English

They make more coffee and more tea in this book than you could possibly believe; complete with descriptions about how each cup tastes.
Callie's decisions are so painfully stupid I want to slap her, but it's like watching a train wreck. You have to see it through to the end.

I have to say I could only put this book down to take care of housework ect. But I also have to say the ending was a HUGE disapointment. For heavens sake, after I stuck with this story and loved it so much to have it just end was terrible. There was so much more to be done to finish it. I don't want to discourage others from reading it , because there were so many good things in this listen. Suspense was incredible, and I so wanted this to turn out much different. I can't say much because I don't want to spoil it for others, but after Callie went through so much with this dispicable, messed up family, I wanted more for her in the end. So many times I wanted her to just walk out on the whole bunch of them. James the father was an oblivious idiot who should have stayed around more to see what was going on in his own family. He didn't need a wife , he needed a shrink. And the boys needed serious attention. The story kept me tied in knots, and even after all my rants, I still consider this a listen to recommend. While I was listening to the story, I was thinking I want to read more of her books, but now I'm afraid I'll go all the way with another and find the ending just as diapointing. Write an epilogue or more of the story next time and don't leave the reader going WHAT, ARE YOU KIDDING.
