Review: Single with Cat

Single with Cat Single with Cat by Rosa Silva
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a very enjoyable book. It is a romance, which I barely ever read. But it is set in Portugal and that is fun. I can't remember a book set in that country. The outcome is predictable but especially satisfying; that is fine because I always enjoy seeing how the author untangles all of the intrigue in the plot. And romance novels have a lot of intrigue!

The characters all have secrets; some you know and some you try to find clues as to what they are. The reader is, therefore, engaged in the romance and the individual characters. That always makes for a good read. They are also multi-faceted; no one is one-dimensional; there are no purely evil or unbelievably good people.

However, there are many problems. It was not edited well, there was no proof-reading, and the translation to English fails many times. There is also repetition and cliché that is tiresome. The format of the Kindle edition needs to be tidied up, also. There were two or three breaks in two characters that were jarring because of their violence that did not fit with the character's personality. If these problems are cleaned up, I would say this is a perfect rainy day book. As it is now, though, I was frustrated by the errors interrupting my reading.

Disclosure: I was asked by the author to review her book.

    1. Hi, messymimi! No. The book was published. I bought it at Amazon. It may have been self-published. I'm not sure.
