One of my all-time favorites

A wonderful read, the kind of book you want to curl up with on a lazy, rainy afternoon next to the fire...

I bought this based upon all of the stars but how could it be that, after having read it, I could not agree with everyone. I do agree Berg writes well but she lacks the ability to create dialog. In order for you to get her point, she makes statement after statement about the same thing totally boring, making it necessary to skip paragraphs because she beats the horse to death. She also uses "I" constantly, over and over and over. Do not be fooled by the stars; the book is not worth it. The ending was flat, like she just tossed it together to get the book completed.

    The thing about this book...

    Berg writes beautifully and I always read straight through, but it is starting to bother me how 'goodie-goodie' everybody is. The perfect boy next door, the perfect old friends who can't wait to reconnect with her, the fab husband who died, their magnificent house she sold, the perfect house she found, the instant realtor friend, all the loving characters, blah blah. I did read 100% of the book and she depicts a recent widow accurately, I imagine, but this book is a bit too perfect for my taste to actually recommend it.
