Not My Cup of Tea But Recommended For SomeLet me start by saying that this is one of those times when I dislike assigning star ratings to reviews That being said and this being a non professional completely consumer review I had to give it two stars This book as the title of this review suggests was not my cup of tea however I would not encourage people to shy away from this book In fact once it is published and released I intend to recommend it to my motherI was unable to finish this book I got about a third of the way through it before I stopped When I ordered this book through the Vine Program I was expecting to be enthralled by the characters and looking to see how they developed and engaged in the interesting situationscharacter traits they were presentedhad In good consciousness I can see how others would enjoy this story and these characters but since I do not normally read this style of book it was not for me I had difficulty caring about the characters and was frustrated by the story that was developing and the characterizations created The plot line is somewhat interesting but not enough to grab me for an extended period of time Again do not take this two star review as the gospel saying do not read this book rather take it as I did not enjoy it but you might As I said I will recommend this book to my mother and some of my colleagues who I m sure would give it much higher reviews than I didI would normally give a book I cannot finish one star but since I can clearly see the appeal for others and there are redeeming things about this book I gave it two starsGood readingJStonerhttpplantsandbooksblogspotcom
