Final Resort - Dana Mentink DNF'd at about 40%.We learn *nothing* about the heroine except that she insists on laughing off the amusing antics of her con-man uncle (aka the scoundrel, rascal, etc.) despite his decades of being a slimy and manipulative THIEF.It's OK that Uncle Paul destroyed her parents' marriage, stole her inheritance, and made enemies of ALL their family, friends and neighbors by stealing THEIR money, because he's just so "charming." And, of course, he's *~*FAMILY*~*, which means he gets a pass for EVERYTHING.GAH. Ava is almost as TSTL as the "heroine" in Susan Mallery's [b:Summer Days|12681050|Summer Days (Fool's Gold, #7)|Susan Mallery|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327269014s/12681050.jpg|17796870]. I felt ZERO compassion about her uncle's abduction, and I saw ZERO potential for respecting Ava as a character by the end of the book. I just wanted to smack her.NOTE: I read a digital review copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.
