Absolutely great story. While the "whodunit" part was easy to figure out, the rest of the story more than makes up for it. The plot was strong and the range of emotions that the characters go through was very realistic.

This book initially drew me in but quickly caused me to lose interest. While I cannot say that I definitely know how this book ends, I have a fairly good idea that I figured it out early on. After having read many other reviews of this book, I have come to the conclusion that it probably ends the way I think. While this alone was not the reason I quit reading, it does keep me from ever wanting to finish the book. What caused me to lose interest was how dry the story line was. I know many people are huge Nicholas Sparks fans, but I am not one of them. I think his books are rather amateurish at best. This one was definitely not worth my time.

This is another good book, like all his stories. However, I did not like how it ended. He went into detail in the beginning and through the middle. But, once all is revealed, it just kind of comes to a quick end with not nearly enough information. It was as if he had a limit on the pages and had to abreviate the end. This could go on further into the story, easily.

Great story, though it was pretty obvious to figure out who did it, didn't take me long at all though it was still shocking. Nicholas Sparks never disappoints me, would love to see this one made into a film like some of his others!
