I finished this book in 2 days and it kept me up all night to finish it. I COULD NOT put it down.The characters were so believable and so different from each other. I don't want to give too much away but this is a great book to read on a summer vacation. It takes place during the summer months and you are guarnteed to find a character to relate to.Excellent read.

I found this book at the perfect time in my life because I could honestly relate to the characters. The characters are 'real' people with real-life problems. I would recommend this book to anyone, I really enjoyed it and could not put it down!

I just love this book. I can't put it down. For someone who has a short attention span, i find myself only engrossed in this character's life. I would recommend this book to anyone!!

Cathi Hanaure's new book, SWEET RUIN, is a delicious read meant for every woman. In this book exist 'real' women for a change, and they also experience very normal feelings, temptations, failings, and successes. But , there are a few shockers thrown in to keep the story passed quickly. A young wife and mother who adores her 6 years old daughter, is passing through a period of great sadness and loss after the death of her infant son. She loves her husband and he loves her, but he seems to have thrown himself into work to salve his pain. That leaves Elayna with too much time on her hands!!! Our heroine, Elayna, has an interesting past with her Mom, Dad and sister that continues to affect her today. She finds herself and her daughter greatly enjoying their times of watching her young nephew. Her sister is a real 'space case' herself. Elayna's best friend is feisty, funny and intensely loyal. She is also single, sexual, and loving her life. Then we have thrown in a much too typical overly protective, extremely organized and intensely opinionated day care provider, Pansy. And Finally, we add in the cute young man across the street who gets Elayna's juices flowing. Nothing simple or commonplace follows the interactions of all these people. The story flies along with emotion, humor, fearful moments, and testing trials. The book is amazingly new and innovative for what may seem, at first, like a typical 'chick lit'. It is a must read for women of all ages and stages of life. If nothing else you will fall in love with Elayna and her daughter. There are multiple issues that would be great for book group discussions and story telling amongst friends.
