5つ星のうち 2.0 Derivative - you've probably read this before 2016/9/19

To paraphrase one reviewer, imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery -- but that doesn't make the imitation worth spending money on. I have a hard time with heroines who seem to lack common sense. As I kept reading, Vinnie kept making foolish decisions - again. And again. And again. And....well, you get the idea.

You may find silliness to be charming. I find it hard to believe that a woman who successfully works with law enforcement of all types, so blithely ignores formal investigative procedures and simple good advice to constantly place herself in danger. That's not feistiness, that's being foolhardy.

This series felt like it was following a checklist. Heroine who's a klutz and doesn't think she's beautiful: Check. Handsome Hunky Hero #1: Check. Handsome Hunky Hero #2: Check. Loyal sidekick: Check. Lots of yummy-sounding Italian food: Check. One parent who can cook up a storm: Check. Small town on the East Coast: Check.

I used to follow Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, but after a while I got tired of them. I'm afraid I got tired of Vinnie a lot faster. Deleting this from my Kindle.

5つ星のうち 2.0 Stilted writing, Stock Characters, No Real Logic or Mystery. No interest in reading anymore. 2015/5/27
投稿者 Gilda Sebenick - (Amazon.com)

I bought this set for $0.99. I like mysteries and I thought that the heroine being a forensics and criminology instructor would add some depth to the investigations. Instead, there was stilted writing, stock characters who never became real, and a heroine acting more like a dumb kid than a teenager in a YA book. For someone who knows forensics, she only seems to use it when she feels like it. Even the cops only seem to follow police procedure when it suits them. And, although others have said it, the formulaic, paint-by-numbers writing is a chore to wade through. Lola has a Julia Roberts smile, Aaron has a WWF build, food is always scrumptious, and, Mr. Winky...enough said. And if heard anymore about her inner voice telling her not to date cops, I think I would have lost it. There was even a couple of paragraphs spent on how she liked to set up her coffee for automatic brewing so it would always be ready. Seriously? I think the author may have been paid by the word. But, the bottom line is when you read a book, you should be left wanting more or feeling satisfied that it ended well. These books are a chore to slog through. I really hoped they would get better, but they didn't. I am happy I am done and have no intention of buying the next one.

1. For Love Of Livvy
Read and reviewed on Amazon, individually.
2. Dirty Trouble
Vinnie is having some bad luck; someone almost kills Vinnie by running her off the road, burning her garage, knocking her down, then her stalker from before returns. Aaron, her FBI neighbor, and Marcus, her trooper boyfriend, are trying to protect her. She has to get her 80-year-old aunt out of jail. She is also afraid that the FBI are going to arrest her dad for mobster connections. The characters are good and the mystery well written.
3. Dead Wrong
This time Vinnie is hurt on a bike, has girl after her boyfriend, and finds out a neighbor has a crush on her. She breaks into a building. And she is a pawn in others’ insurance fraud. Her art stealing uncle dies and a painting shows up and then disappears. Vinnie’s life is crazy and she is trying to keep her perfect brother, Giovnni, out of jail.
5つ星のうち 1.0 Redundant much! 2016/6/16

Good plot, fun story, but I got sick of hearing same description of each character every single time they appeared. We know Lola has Julia Roberts smile without being told 20 times! And that the 2 male characters we huge & gorgeous. And that her dad thought marriage and kids were the only way to go.
I wanted to slap the smirks off all of their faces because every time they conversed somebody was smirking. Author also must have a new thesaurus because she kept using way to many pretentious words and adjectives. I found myself skipping pages at a time because every encounter with her boyfriend was the same. This was 3 books but I couldn't stand reading the last one.

"For Love of Livvy", "Dirty Trouble", "Dead Wrong"
For those who are keeping score, here are the standings on all the components I've noted most reviewers object to:
(1) No paranormal/supernatural/magic components;
(2) Mild profanity;
(3) Frequent romance;
(4) No explicit sex;
(5) "Aggressive behaviors" as opposed to down-and-dirty violence;
(6) No child or animal abuse;
(7) No religious/alternative lifestyle agenda or promotion, with the exception of one tastefully done homosexual character;
(8) Not a cliffhanger ending;
(9) Grammar and punctuation police, come ahead on
I know imitation is said to be the sincerest form of flattery but I'm not sure that extends far enough to lend it a pass to success for an author. Every time I see an author copycat an already successful premise - such as this Evanovich knockoff (attractive yet ditzy/accident prone female from boisterous Italian/Irish/insert-favorite-ethnic-group-here family with quirky relatives, and an attraction for and to two hot males, one of whom is slightly mysterious) - I wonder what goes through the authors' minds. I mean, do they think we won't notice? Let me also say that if you read "Dirty Trouble" ahead of "For Love of Livvy" you can dispense with reading "Livvy", because "Dirty" not only reveals the guilty party from "Livvy", but The Entire Plot as well.
I found the dialogue remarkably inconsistent. One minute it's very high school, next it's very formal and stilted, even between intimates, and neither one is very effective. And please, please don't write dialect unless you're good at it and can do it without resulting to stereotype.
Hard-To-Take-This-Seriously Department: How can anybody come up with character names such as Lola Trapezi (watching too many Burt Lancaster movies?), a used car salesman named Justin Scuzzi, a female state trooper named Ima Gozinta, an attorney named John Schmuck, a judge named Alan Alibaster, Nurse Crisp, a physical therapist named Stanley Gristle, and a doctor named Kawackne with a straight face or without a punchline? And then there's cousins Gina and Cara, who later inexplicably become Gina and Tina.
Particularly annoying: Vinnie goes awfully quickly from just-met to passionate kissing a state trooper, and what's with all the coffee? A promo for the American Coffee Council? Every other page she's either brewing a pot, drinking a cup, or talking about either or both; With that much caffeine t's a wonder she ever sleeps. And every time her BFF makes an appearance or is mentioned or even thought of, her "Julia Roberts smile" has to be discussed. Enough, awready! And what's all this "Mr. Winky" foolishness?
Some scenarios were just too pathetic for someone who's supposedly teaching college classes in criminology to state troopers and security guards. A mysterious package is delivered to your doorstep by an unidentified person and you call the authorities before opening it, yet later on when you think a stalker is spying on you from the second floor of your detached garage you don't either check it out or call the authorities until the building catches fire?
Now, nothing I found was annoying enough to cause me to abandon reading, but if you have fairly rigid standards in terms of plot and character development this may not be for you. The basic story lines - insurance fraud, stolen jewels, Mafia involvement, fine art theft, cat burglar relatives - and various plot twists might have made for good reading on their own (thus the second star rating), but the distractions - copycat characters, inconsistent dialogue, chronic overuse of words, inexplicably horrifying secondary character names, chronic overuse of words (deserves mentioning twice), and the ever-popular "Mr. Winky" - completely ruined any chance for redemption here.
In closing, here are some additional series-specific (at least for the three in this boxed set) statistics:
Coffee is mentioned 181 times
"Mr. Winky" is mentioned 15 times
The Julia Roberts smile is mentioned 11 times
"smirk" is used 93 times
"chuckle" is used 182 times
Although I will politely pass on Ms. Griffin's further efforts (a recent Sarah McDougall entry is described as having "a psychic heroin" - check Griffin's Amazon page; she even gets that wrong), rest assured I may still try one or two more Vinnie books (as long as they're free), if for no other reason than to see if she manages to drop Mr. Winky, find some synonyms for "smirk" and "chuckle", give up that serious coffee addiction, and increase her attention span long enough to keep her characters' names consistent.
