"Asher brings an abundance of warmth and wisdom to this tale of lost-and-found love." (Publishers Weekly)
Lacks an actual story--just an annoying woman who basically lives in her head and makes me want to stab a fork in my eye to end the misery. I'm 3 hours in and just can't finish. I'm giving up. I want a refund.
Carrington MacDuffie's voice droned on so slowly, I actually had to put my iPod on double-time just to get through the rambling internal debates and baggage the main character was struggling with. I would avoid future books with her narrating.
Be alive! She sounded like Ben Stein at times!
Irritation. I loathe books where you're supposed to sympathize with the protagonist for being an adulterer. I feel like the author "bailed out" the protagonist; for some reason when the protagonist discovers that her husband "cheated first" her indiscretions were all justified and she becomes the victim. Wtf. Seriously.
Try "The Undomestic Goddess" if you want a fun bait-and-switch story.
is ok not one of those run out and buy but ok. made a fast trip to houston and back and it kept me busy. if you want easy fast and not to deep this is what you need. hope there is not a second one don't think i could stay awake for it.
