Get Over It

While parts of this book were entertaining, I grew tired how Ethan allowed his younger brothers to harbor a ridiculous grudge against him for decisions he made as a teen. Evidently Ethan's parents made no provisions for their two underage sons before they were killed in an auto accident, yet no blame was placed on these adults. No, Nash and Dare expected 18 year old Ethan to do the impossible, despite not having the money or maturity to become their guardian.

Likewise, people seemed to blame Faith, the daughter of a scam artist who stole millions, for the sins of her father. What rational person would hate a young woman for the actions of an older, educated and experienced man? Who gets to pick their biological family members. Unfortunately, Faith and Ethan spent most of the book wallowing in guilt and self pity, rather than grow a backbone and tell the world to get over it.

Sadly, none of the adults in the small town of Serendipity, taught Ethan's young half sister Tess to believe in herself, rather than care what spiteful, small-minded people say or think. Not sure who was more annoying, the brother Grimm or the ever guilty Ethan and Faith. Faith's friend Kate and 14 year old Tess were definitely the most likable characters.

Can't help but love the main characters!

Carly Philips has a knack for making her characters fall in love and her readers fall in love with her characters. This one is no exception.
