If you liked The Da Vinci Code, you'll like this book. They are very similar. An easy read.

I liked this book well enough. It was a little predictable at times. It's basically a romance novel with some witchcraft thrown in.

I thought this book was just ok. Not great, and definitely not as good as Sex in the City.

I got so many crazy looks when I would read this book at work on my lunch break. I laughed out loud and everyone thought I was crazy!

This book is ridiculously funny. Smart and funny is a combination I love in a book.

Very intense and a little scary. I liked it better than the movie.

This book is incredibly boring. I couldn't even get halfway through it before I'd had enough. Far, far too wordy. I forced myself to read even that far hoping that something, anything, would happen but nothing ever did. I'm glad to be rid of this book but sorry someone else had to waste a credit on it.

Cute little book. Would be a good gift for a new parent, especially a new dad.
