Fallen Women - Sandra Dallas

So you guys know me and my love for historical mysteries featuring women detectives, right? By all means, I should have loved this book.

 

FUCKING NO. I'M AT 25% AND ALL I FEEL IS ANGER.

 

Setting: United States, Denver/New York - 1885. There is no fucking pretense to historical accuracy in this book. 5 seconds of Googling makes me a better researcher than the author.

 

Seriously, skyscrapers in New York---in 1885? How about fucking no.

 

The term "heartburn?" How about no.

 

The heroine is a sanctimonious prissy little passive-aggressive bitch. I wanted a vengeance story, because her sister was murdered. I love a good sibling vengeance story. The heroine in this book is a fucking bitch. She doesn't love her sister. She hated her and secretly slut-shames her for her beauty.

 

Oh, and her sister is SOOOOOOOOOOOO beautiful. She flaunts her beauty.

 

THEREFORE SHE DESERVES IT.

 

SAY NO TO VICTIM BLAMING.

 

Walk, don't run.

 

I still have 75% to go. From what I read from other reviews, the MC is TSTL. So far, I haven't gotten into that part yet.

 

Pray for me ;_;
