This book was tedious. I bought it new because Edward's The Memory Keeper's Daughter was so good. Kim Edwards writes beautifully but this book suffers because the plot is confusing and not even interesting. Edwards sets up mystery and then employs improbable but convenient devices to solve it. The protagonist is unlikeable - and I don't think that was Edwards' intent - so I found myself slogging through the book hoping something interesting would happen.
