    10. I was looking forward to reading Elizabeth Maddrey s A Splash of Substance Although this is a very sweet read and a good book for anyone wanting a simple romantic story, I found the storyline a bit slow not only in the beginning, but also throughout the plot Some of the dialogue could have been shortened and not as repetitious I did wish for emotion in the characters and for a little in depth plot in the political scenes To me it needed to explain on why Jackson resigned The abrupt change in [...]
