Review: Me, Myself and Why? by MaryJanice Davidson

Me, Myself and Why?

Sweet and innocent with a twist of girl-next-door, Cadence Jones is not your typical girl and certainly not your typical FBI agent. Just ask her sisters, Shiro and Adrienne. (Wait. . .best if you don’t ask Adrienne anything.) But it’s her special “talent” which makes Cadence so valuable to the FBI and it never comes in more handy than when she and her partner, George, get tagged to bring down the Threefer Killer. A serial killer who inexplicably likes to kill in threes, leave behind inexplicable newspaper clippings, and not one shred of decent forensic evidence, soon starts leaving messages that seem to be just for Cadence and her sisters. Could it be that this killer knows all about Cadence’s special “talent”? In the meantime, love blooms in the most unexpected place when Cadence meets her best friend’s gorgeous brother who is in town visiting—and she discovers that he knows her secret too! When attraction burns hot between them her best friend isn’t thrilled with the romantic development and this time Cadence just might agree!

I was so disappointed in this book. I am a HUGE fan of everything else MaryJanice has written including the YA series she writes with her husband but this one is too confusing and disjointed to be good.

I get that it's somewhat choppy because of Cadence's Multiple Personality Disorder but besides those shifts in the middle of sentences the storyline jumps all over the place too and it was disorienting. I found myself having to re-read several pages to understand what just happened.

In addition I felt that it was just too predictable. I figured out the ending way to soon and I'm sad to say this one is not something I could recommend.
