This was the cheesiest book I've read/heard in a long time. But I really needed a break, so I enjoyed the listen. You can tell the author is from the low country because she seemed very comfortable describing that life. And it really does seem amazing. Describing the Chicago life and its people seemed forced, but that's ok, we could get the point. Nevertheless it was a cute feel-good story.
