The Crimson Rooms by Katharine McMahon

The Crimson Rooms - Katharine McMahon

I didn't realize this was by an author I'd tried to read before, but I figured I'd give it a try.  The first chapter seemed really good, so I thought I'd keep going.  It wasn't as strong after that, but I thought it was ok, though I credit that to having been sleep-deprived.  I got a good night's sleep, and then I realized that this wasn't the book for me.  I didn't like the characters, and the writing was so sappy and overly wordy.  Just too annoying in so many ways.
