Tan Ï Raining Men and CorpsesBook 1 of the Raina Sun Murder Mystery seriesA contemporary humorous mystery set in the fictitious small college town of Gold Springs California Raina Sun is a typical graduate student trying to keep her head above watA’s postage stamp sized apartment dragging a red suitcase and trouble The family secret Raina has been running away from is now staring at her across the dining room table every morningRaina must figure out how to extract herself before things get dicey There is no place for an amateur when it comes to murder The eclectic cast of characters in this amateur sleuth mystery will have you scratching your head and laughing until the end Because it was in the ‘read now’ section of NetGalley and I liked the cover and description I downloaded this bookFor me it was not altogether a very bad or very good read I do like the author’s writing style but as other people before me I was disappointed because of some important points First of all the editing Even for me being Dutch I could spot the mistakes and inconsistancies Second and I’m again not the only one to mention this is the fact that there was too much information about things that happened in the past without a further explanation Why not make Matthew just an ex boyfriend? Less trouble less explaining to do and clear for the readers My digital copy of the book is full of bookmarks because I really had trouble sometimes to find out why I was reading something for example the whole part about the second family of Raina’s grandfather or the story regarding the inheritance It would have been better had the author spaced out this information over two or maybe three books There is however no explanation at all why Raina is a grad student at a History college apparently working a job in the IT lab and complaining she left a job as an engineer? And by the way there is no such thing as an Chief in Editor apparently there was no ‘Editor in chief’ at hand when this book was editedOf course there were good points too I liked big parts of the book including Po Po’s character ; I admire Anne Tan because she wrote this book and is not afraid of criticism I hope that for the next books there is a better editor at hand to help the author to work on being a much better writer
