It's a horror novel that had some good ideas, but fell short in execution. Mainly because of such weak characters.

I can't remember where that book came up for me - a request, or a freebie, or something, but I didn't opt in. It only took the first line of the blurb to make my decision:

Quote:
How Does a Hot, Sexy Mother Who Hates Her Daughter Put Her Ultimate Plan Into Action?
It's not just the "Hot" and the "Sexy", or even the "Ultimate" in that sentence, it's also the fact that for some reason the whole thing is in title case.

I didn't go any further after that. I know it's a bit harsh, but I've got this thing about the first sentence I see. If it's a disaster, I take it as an ill omen.
