Books I Couldn't Finish: Slice of Cherry by Dia Reeves
Why Didn't You Finish It: As much as I hate to admit it, this book was too gross for me.
Look, I'm a big girl, I don't expect a book about serial killing sisters to be all sweetness and light. Gore comes with the subject.
Reeves is a great writer, her characters are interesting, Portero is a great setting. However, when the two sisters eviscerate a man and leave him, alive, and watch while animals eat his entrails.... I'm done.
What? I read at lunch a lot.
Dissenting Opinions? As always
Bottom Line: This book is a good read for the strong of stomach stomach and the open of mind. While I have plenty of the latter, I failed to measure up on the former.
