Good book.....

However it could have been condensed by about 200 pages. The plot was good and it was a good story, but it seemed to drag along. Barbara Freethy is a good author but this was not one of my favorites.

    Everything in this book is predictable; plot, characters, writing. Even for an easy summer read, this did not hit the mark.

    Not worth reading. This book was so long and drawn out. The plot never changed until the very end. Chapter after chapter was so predictable and anti climactic. I started skimming over the chapters just to get through them. It wasnt until the very end, when you finally got to see some action, which was also predictable and very far fetched.
