Portable Magic

Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

Death on Demand: DNF @ 26%

Death on Demand (Death on Demand Mysteries, No. 1) - Carolyn Hart

DNF at 26% after giving a minimum 30 minutes of listening. I've made three attempts at listening to this book but simply cannot get interested in it. I'm not going to do a star rating, though, because I might just not be in the mood for it, but I'm really put off by the romance elements so early in the story, along with the great vomitous chunks of exposition.
