    When her older sister runs away to marry a rodeo cowboy, sixth-grader Alice Winston is left to bear the brunt of her family's troubles: a depressed, bed-ridden mother; a reticent, overworked father; and a rundown horse ranch. As the hottest summer in 15 years unfolds and bills pile up, Alice is torn between dreams of escaping the loneliness of her duty-filled life and a longing to help her father mend their family and the ranch.

    Cameo says: "Recommended"
    "Disappointing melodrama"
    Overall

    This book was frustrating. The characters were universally negative, shallow and generally uninteresting. The plot was dark with too many issues resolved by tragedy or violence....as if the author had too many plots and lost her way.

    Bronwynn Prescott Pierson had certainly made a mess of things. She'd left a disloyal groom at the altar, driven to Vermont, and now stood, near-tears, on the steps of a ramshackle Victorian house in her satin wedding gown.

    I have read and enjoyed Hoag books and thought I'd get another good airplane read. This book is pathetic; I could have written it. Hackneyed plot - totally predictable...shallow, predictable characters, puerile dialogue. I had it in the paper version and threw it away. I'm not even going to finish listening to it...maddeningly terrible. What was Hoag thinking?!

    Mary DiNunzio is a trademark Lisa Scottoline heroine - she's strong, she's smart, and she's got plenty of attitude. In recent years, she's become a big-time business-getter at Rosato & Associates, but the last person she expects to walk into her office one morning - in mile-high stilettos - is super sexy Trish Gambone, her high school rival.

    M. Devlin says: "A welcome return to Rosato and Associates"
    "Great narration not so great book"
    Overall

    I loved the narration of this book. In fact, that's what kept me going. I realize the author is beloved, but so much of the plot seemed to rest on really stupid decisions by the characters, especially the main character who put herself in incredibly dangerous positions and was so impulsive. Actually, a speech by Benny/Bennie at the end was right on point...that she was too impulsive to be a reliable partner...but that was after hours of listening to Mary and The Girls acting brainless...most of the time.
