Victoria and Jason's story is great! I know others have written and said the same but I had to add my two cents worth. You will laugh and cry and believe in the power of love. This is classic McNaught at her best and this is one of my favorites of hers.
This was the first romance novel I ever read, and needless to say it got me hooked. Judith McNaught really knows how to play with your emotions. You feel ever thing the characters are feeling, and I think thats what makes it so great to read one of her books.
