Reading Jennifer McMahon

Both Promise Not To Tell and Island of Lost Girls were good. They were both page turners although the second was a little more predictable in terms of ending. Both books are written so that the past and present are interleaved into the book so the reader switches from the present to the past. Fortunately they both advance the story so it was not disconcerting for me. I enjoyed both books but I'm not sure if I'd read another one of her future books. The style and approach is getting a little stale as well as the type of stories that she tells. She is quite a good writer though so I think she might be able to pull of another one of these genre very well, so who knows.
