by publisher 25 starsI thought this was okay I really did not like Jennifer or Emma I thought they were both spoiled whiny and entitled At some points I found myself rooting against them because I found them so unlikeable Jennifer views her daughter Emma as having no faults at all and explains away everything that Emma does wrong even her part n the murder of a young Spanish man My dislike only ncreased as she pines away for the PI helping her work on her daughter s case She just came across as so selfish She didn t care that her other kids at home needed her She said that she was staying The Weavers Idea Book in Spain to help her daughter butt was clear that she just wanted to be near Roberto Emma does nothing but whine and complain even as her parents are paying for high priced lawyers and private detectives to help her Without them she would ve rotted away The Mission of Mooney Rooney in a Spanish prison and she Thiss an The Road to There interesting story about murder and motherhood The storys told from Jennifer s point of view and the book delves deeply nto how the murder accusations effect the accused s family I was nterested Used (Getting Inside of V, in the storyline and figuring our whether Emma wasnnocent or guilty But there was something about the book that put me off a little I am sure everyone has heard the motto for writers show don t tell Well this author did not show very much For Inside a Barn in the Country instance when the author was describing some *of the landmarks or customsn Spain she sounded like of a tour guide When *the landmarks or customs The Simple Guide to Freshwater Aquariums in Spain she sounded like of a tour guide When read books setn other locations especially when those locations are other countries I enjoy authors who can transplant me to that place with their words This book did not do thatNow of course this book was about than just the location but that Athena is just an example of where the author fell flatn her descriptions of things I really disliked the character of Jennifer It was hard to connect with her because the author also did not describe Jennifer s feelings very well There would be long conversations with dialogue only no descriptions of facial expressions emotions or anything So the only way I knew Jennifer was feeling was when she actually told someone about Tales from the Toolbox it And Jennifer seemed way blind to her daughters faults than most mothers Every single time something happened and there are flashbacks of other events that happened throughout Emma s childhood Jennifer would make excuses and say there was a mistake despiterrefutable evidence to the contrary That got really old Jennifer s decision at the end of the book shocked me and furthered my dislike of her I don t want to say too much about that because I don t want to give away the ending to those who may choose to read the book This review s a little late coming as I didn t realize I hadn t yet updated t even though I finished t over a month ago This book caught my attention as t s description seemed to have many similarities to the Amanda Knox case Jennifer Lewis Det ordnar sig is shocked when shes awakened n the night by a phone call from her ter.
