Tandem - Book Review

I've been putting off this review because I don't really have that much to say. Here goes...

Tandem by Tracey Bateman has been my least favorite book of 2011 so far. This is a new author for me so I tried my hardest to give it my best shot. I even put it down and came back to it to try again. I just couldn't get into it. For one thing, I'm just not into the vampire genre and that's what this book was (unbeknownst to me). I don't have anything against the genre so my review isn't based on that premise, I just didn't "click" with the book. I kept hoping I would get more interested but the characters all seemed somewhat flat and the conversations were stilted. The plot line jumped around a bit and I found myself confused. I don't mind a twisted storyline, I just found this one more confusing that I wanted to put up with.

All in all, I was disappointed but it wasn't so bad that I would never pick up anything of Bateman's ever again. I just didn't click with this novel.

Waterbrook Press provided me with a free copy in exchange for my fair and honest review of this book.

i found your review while trying to decide what to do about MY review of this book! I have had this book for a very long time but can't even bring myself to read it! i just wasn't expecting a vampire book from a Christian publisher! I guess I will just write that and move on! thanks for giving me the "go ahead" to just tell 'em what I think! ;)
