Very disturbing plotline. If you are a survivor of molestation by a family memberor are close to someone who is, do not read this book. It's considerably different from Delinsky's other books. Very dark. compelling storyline. I couldn't put it down.
I really enjoyed this story. It was incredibly engrossing, well written,and powerful. It took serious life elements and wrapped a completely wonderful metaphor around every character bringing it life in so many ways. In essence nearly every character in some way or another is 'flirting with Pete'. Who's Pete? Well, read it and find out. An incredibly well structured story.
I loved this book. It grabs you from the first page and you don't want to put it down. The plot has a few twists and turns to keep you guessing. Overall, a very enjoyable read.
This is one of my favorite Delinsky books. A young woman inherits a townhouse from a father who never acknowledged her. As she decides what to do with this unexpected gift, she discovers more about herself in his home than she could have ever imagined.
This was only my second Barbara Delinsky book. I was so impressed with the first one that I had to get 2 more off of paperback swap. Flirting with Pete was great. I just loved it. It was almost like 2 stories in one book. It kept me very interested.
