I have another #AugustARCBinge review for you! I finished LOVE SOLD SEPARATELY the other day and was pleasantly surprised with the twists!
LOVE SOLD SEPARATELY is a romance and a mystery all in one. It was sort of like a cozy mystery but also not. It takes place in New York City and our heroine detective is Dana, an up and coming actress who just scored a dream job thanks to her attention to detail, a host on the shopping channel! On her first day, disaster strikes. The channel darling (or insufferable diva depending who you ask) is dead!
As Dana starts to unravel the mystery, she meets a few handsome men along the way that just might be her Prince Charming!
I enjoyed this book because of the different setting and I’ve never read a book about the shopping channel and what it’s like there. It was a fun behind the scenes of something new for me and I enjoyed that! It also was a fun mystery and I couldn’t predict who did it and there was a character from Finland, where my family is from, who speaks Finnish and I love the representation!!
I had a few things I didn’t like however for full transparency. First, the Finnish character was not quiet or stoic enough. Or drank enough coffee. These are key characteristics of Finnish people, I mean we drink the most coffee per capita in the world! And we define introverted! Second, the character Dana was not my favorite. A lot of her actions just didn’t make sense with her character and it made it hard to read sometimes.
My six word review:
Murder drama on the shopping channel
