Scene hopping without so much as a double return to warn the reader is rude, especially when the author changes characters at the same time. Point of view changes back and forth within a scene is amateur at best and dizzying at the worst.
The plot made me pick up this book and I really tried to ignore the poor writing skills and lack of editing (which would have caught the problems) but I detest having to reread repeatedly to understand how the story jumps from one scene to another with hardly a break in sentence.
BTW...a person can’t SEE the legs of the person descending a ship’s ladder ahead...sigh. That was the final straw for my patience with this author’s lack of skill - both writing and visual...
Kat Martin needs to make her living giving stories to authors who have the knowledge and ability to write.
Treasure hunter and former Navy Seal Conner Reese isn't happy to have Hope along for the ride. He doesn't need the publicity nor does he want a gorgeous redhead driving his crew and himself to distraction. But there's something else. Conner can sense extreme danger, and danger is following Hope Sinclair very, very closely.
The reason I didn't enjoy it so much was the fact that Hope wasn't the adventurer that her sisters were. Indeed, even Hope admits that she's a coward. For me, her struggle against men/marriage/Conner went on far too long. So her engagement ended in disaster. She should have thanked her lucky stars she found out what a slime the guy was before the wedding. Instead, she keeps comparing our hero to Richard, the slime. No way. She leaps to far too many conclusions and has a hard time backing off of them. In the beginning, Conn forms a conclusion about her but wastes no time in revising that when he gets to know her a bit better. I do like how she stood up for the old people, how good she was with the boat crew and that she kept on task with her writing. I just felt her angst was a tad overdone. I believe the miscarriage could have been handled a bit differently but, I guess, Ms. Martin needed that to be an essential part of her story.
On the other hand, I adored Conner. Great hero. And the hunt for the Spanish galleon was exciting. I enjoyed that a lot. I don't know that I would ever be brave enough to scuba dive but I enjoy reading about it.
I've read Ms. Martin for years now and really have enjoyed her whole body of work. Some more than others, of course. May she and her word processor continue to turn out good stories.
