This was the first book of Delinsky's that I'd read. It centered around a strong, intelligent woman and I really enjoyed it. I'll be reading more of her books for sure.

I just discovered Barbara Delinsky and this was her second book that I read. While the plot of both books are a bit predictable, her writing is so good that I was drawn in almost immediately. I could actually feel what the main character was feeling. Great read.

I am never disappointed by a Barbara Delinsky & I wasn't this time, either. In a word - fabulous! Delinsky always brings additional depth to her stories with her rich, authentic settings, background information & wonderful, "real" characters. Not only does this one get my recommendation, but also my Mom's & my best friend's.

I really got involved in this story. Unlike some romance novels that are so simple and predictable, this story really had suspense and kept me involved in the story. I enjoyed the fact that I actually learned something new while reading it too. I learned about lobstering and angora rabbits! Good read--I highly recommend it.
