When I began reading Last Stop Sunnyside, I was drawn in by the location (Parkdale in Toronto, my city) and the characters. The mystery sounded interesting too. But then, I’m not sure what happened, but as I read on, my interest waned till by the end I was skimming. I don’t know if it was the typos or the verb tense changes — when writing in present tense, you have to be so careful not to slip into past tense, which did happened here and so I couldn’t figure out what tense the book was supposed to be in, very confusing. I don’t know if it was the characters were missing some fleshing out, not turning them from 2D to 3D, or if it was because the mystery was solved quickly within the story itself, thus not leaving much suspense to keep the reader hooked, but in any case, I lost interest. It’s too bad because I’m always looking for a good Canadian mystery author.
