I can't decide if I deserve to be publicly flogged for picking up another of these stupid books or if I deserve pity and compassion for deciding to put it down after 72 pages...

As soon as I read the description, I groaned. Really? Another story in which the fabulously disgusting Lori almost but not quite leaves her husband and kids for some dude who is ironically but of-course-ly drooling over her. Yuck. So sick of her. Why do I read these????

Why did the author even give Lori a husband and kids? She never spends any time with them. I stopped at page 72 and then read the last few pages. Super boring storyline and I have a big issue with Lori's mentality that it's ok for her and her husband to have "wandering eyes"....somehow this makes their relationship "stronger"?? I once read that Atherton says she bases Lori on herself. Guess I'm sad for her then... I really gotta be done. Really. Must be. Can't take it anymore. Sad, too, because Atherton's stories are fun, well-written, spunky...just can't stand the character of Lori. Maybe we could write her out, hmmm?… (lisätietoja)

Whhhhhyyyyyy do I read these. Ugh. I am so done.

Lori is supposedly soooooo in love with her husband yet she fantasizes about every relatively attractive and eligible man she meets. Crawls into bed with him...really? Why did I read this.

Adam seems to accept weird things too readily. Other characters were flat. I can't stand Lori. I don't even like me right now. Stay away from these books!!! Learn from me!!!!

The Aunt Dimity books are really hit and miss for me. I've really enjoyed a couple, I've totally despised a couple, but most of them are sorta, "meh". This one was on the lower side of "blah" and I gave it up after about 150 pages. I just don't like Lori at all, Dimity didn't make much of an appearance, and the mystery wasn't all that interesting. Oh well. I think it's time I gave up on Dimity.
