    Story line was OK, I guessed the outcome somewhere in the middl

    Story line was OK, I guessed the outcome somewhere in the middle of the story which is exactly as an anonymous review on 6/24 stated. It could have been better had the author hired an editor. Sentence structure VERY confusing throughout the book! I would have put it down except I needed to see for myself if I was correct. The ending? What a waste. It's an OK free read if you have the patience to wade through the extremely poor editing. If not, this book isn't for you.

    Omg

    I thought this ending could of been better. I mean really??? So that secret was not worth all the drama. It ended way to fast and alot of long chapters which i skimmed. Could of been a shorter book. And i am assuming she didnt finish her job? It was an ok read.

    Poor edits

    Seriously needs a red pen. Ended too soon and the secret sucks. Needs at least 100 more pages.

    Good read

    An enjoyable story. The plot was good but I felt the story dragged in places. All in all a pleasant read. FL

    Good story!

    Story was overall good but there were a lot of editing mistakes--sometimes I couldn't even figure out what the sentence was supposed to be. Once you figured out the "big secret" about halfway through, the plot dragged and the ending was rushed but it was a good story especially for a free read.
