    EDIT: the author has done some questionable things that have me lowering this rating. Honestly, an author who threatens legal action over a two star review is intense. 200th book done!!! and it was lowkey mediocre as heck. full review to come in january when i do this blog tour.

    I will not touch anything by a writer who threatens reviewers with legal action for expressing their opinions of her book. And experienced, real authors know that no one can be sued for expressing an opinion of a book in a review.Good luck with that career, Missy!
