I think after I read my last Gerri Hill romance I said I wasn’t going to read any more of them. I hope I remember that the next time I get the urge.
Hill used to be one of my go-to romance authors. Her books weren’t spectacular but they were consistently easy to read and had characters I could connect with and that I cheered for. But the last two or three that I’ve read had characters who were pretty unlikable and, honestly, participating in or supporting behaviors that I found morally unacceptable (stalking, blackmail, peeping, etc).
There were times when I nearly quit reading The Neighbor but ended up sticking it out.
