    A quick read an decent story -- but very Poorly Edited

    Seemed hastily written and/or just poorly edited. Contains many wrong words (seems like they just did a simple spell check which won't substitute the appropriate word if not selected). Also, numerous grammatical errors. Just not necessary today with even a cursory edit read. Reminded of a 'story farm'. Similar to those 'starving' artists shows. Represents a mass production with little skill, care or quality.

    I liked this book more than I thought I would - not normally a chick-lit type of person. Great ending, great story. I recommend it.

    Good start; but got too predictable

    I liked this book initially. It's about a female vet who moves back to her hometown after many years and many unresolved issues around the death of her best friend. For a smart vet, she continues to make a lot of dumb assumptions that end in the same predictable way. The ending was way too predictable!

    Unconventionally awesome

    I didn't know what I was going to get with this book. I love the small details that really added to the characters. I couldn't put it down because I wanted to know how they "shut the door" on this story.

    Great Story!

    I think the speed of the love story was perfect, and I found it very realistic! Loved it! There were a few spelling errors, but the story was good enough that I can overlook that.

    Going into this book, I wasn't completely sure.  It took a while

    Going into this book, I wasn't completely sure.  It took a while to figure Lizzy out-seemed unreal at first that her luck could be so bad.  It was strange to think that in today's world, there are people like Will (the "man) who will stop to help a stranger as he did-giving all he could.  You learn more of Lizzy's story through her relationship with Oscar, the old guy upstairs.  By the first 100 pages, I was rooting for the romance, but I liked the way it had to slowly develop over the rest of the book because Lizzy had to discover who she was before she could fall in love.  I read this book in a few short hours (my eyes flying right past any minor grammatical error).  This is a book about healing, and finding your place in life!!  You can't run forever!

    Just not good.

    It started off interesting, but I realized as I read on, just how poorly written this is.

    Good Read

    Quite a lovely story; was teary eyed at more parts than one. Only problem I had was grammatical and speeling errors. Usually it wouldn't be a problem, but the mistakes were enough to make you read a sentence twice to underatand. Other than that, would definitely recommend!
