I enjoyed this book and found it to be a quick read that held your attention. I do think that the author could have spent some more time developing the husbands past and I agree that it did end somewhat abruptly.

Good book, held your attention, but not exactly what I thought it would be.

found the story clique and unrealistic, terrible ending, i chucked it across the room

BookLender review by Rebecca on 2007-05-27 01:55:03

Not bad, but could have been better. I thought the explanation of her husband's life was unrealistic and not in keeping with his character. The author also glossed over some legalities with his situation that I would have like her to explain.
