Nice change of pace

This morning I finished Game of Thrones, and I needed a different style of book to break the mood before going to the next book in the series of the GoT

I grabbed this book after seeing it on the shelves for a long time, reading some good reviews, the plot seemed interesting, and, to be honest, I thought the cover was interesting. It's not that this book was bad, I enjoyed the writing and the characters, I just couldn't get into it. I had to put it down and pick it back up several times in a span of two months which is rare for me if I find a good book. I think the main problem for me was that the book never had a moment that I was fully engrossed in it. It seemed to take a while to get anywhere. Lots of unnecessary details and slow moving. He kept cheating and reforming and cheating and reforming every chapter. It only really got exciting toward the end (although I really wanted her to tell him off) and by that time my opinion of the book had already been made.

Overall everything was just okay. The characters were likable enough, I was mildly into the plot and what would happen next but nothing to write home about. I don't regret reading it but I wouldn't add it to my favorites. I would recommend it as a light summer read.

    Boring

    I couldn't even finish the book. It never really got interesting; cheating husband, they move to NY, husband keeps cheating. Blah blaah, I kept waiting for her to meet someone new but seriously took too long and it seemed as if it kept going in circles somehow, pretty much never-ending. When I pick up a book I always read it until the end whether I like it or not, but I just couldn't continue on with this one. "Straight Talking" was a far better book.

    Boring, stupid!!

    Alice was such a frustrating character - spineless and dull! I mean she was a complete and total idiot. Joe was a slimeball. This plot was predicatable and completely pointless. Joe cheats on Alice - again and again. Alice ignores it - again and again. Alice finally gains courage and a happy ending 'last 5 pages of the book'. I can't believe anyone would give this book a good review.

    Ever read Spellbound?

    I have read all of Jane Greens books including one titled Spellbound. Unless the books I bought were mixed up, that is THE SAME story as To have and to Hold. I hope it was a mix up because I am very disappointed.
