“I'm not sure what prompted me to buy this. It's not generally my kind book. Perhaps it was all the 5 star ratings and the purchase price was low. Whatever the reason, it was not reason enough. I am surprised at the large number of high ratings. I found the characters, the plot and the writing boring. I had a hard time getting through the book and nearly quit several times. I kept with it so that my review and rating would be "whole" and fair.
I think what I liked least about the story was how wishy washy the "heroine" was. One minute she was completely in love, the next minute, she wasn't so sure. Once or twice in the story...ok. But not every other page. It was like watching a tennis match. Back and forth, back and forth. It really was like reading the same chapter over and over. The characters were so shallow. I felt as though I were seeing cardboard cutouts interact with one another. The dialog often felt forced. There were just so many problems with the story, it just didn't ring true anywhere or at any time. ”
