This novel has its faults, a tried and true storyline that feels like it's pieces of her other novels and the original ending was a bit abrupt. I'm a bigger fan of her historical novels but I have liked all of her contemproaries thus far but EBYT fell a bit flat for me. However, when the paperback was released, McNaught reworked the ending (I think due to the outcry from her fans that something wasn't right about it) and it flows MUCH nicer now and the ending is perfect. Still not her best work but if you are going to read this novel, make sure you read the paperback.

What this book boiled down to was a very detailed soap opera. From what the heroine was wearing and why she changed her clothes to the kind of wood in the conference room, the author stuffs the plot with minutae. The basic storyline was drama, drama, drama - the lovers fall madly in love in less than 48 hours, but she has to break up with her boyfriend of 4 years (4 years!!?!) Through a massive misunderstanding & lots of lies, they part, but she secretly has his love child. The child is kidnapped, and the lovers reunite & become a family. And, by the way, the hero was discarded as a child and has made himself into a multimillion dollar, handsome-as-sin super-powerful enigma. Somebody, please hand me a barf bag.

Kate Donovan is on a tropical island when she meets and falls in love with Mitchell Wyatt. Great story although it was a little predictable. Nice light contemporary romance with a small portion of suspense thrown in.

While this is not McNaught's best work, her writing is better than most other books. Probably the weakest part of the book is the abrupt ending. I did enjoy reading it in spite of that.

I liked this book as a whole. I enjoyed the story line and was anxious to see how it ended but its' large time gaps and leaps into the future without logic made it difficult for me to grasp the story as reality sometimes. I suppose this is just a personal preference, but I like a story that flows so seamlessly that I believe it might be happening nextdoor. This was stilted and jerky in places. I did, however, enjoy it overall - I just had the feeling the editor made the author trim the story to fit onto less pages.

I have been a Judith McNaught fan for many years. This writing was not as good as her first books, but it was still good. I would read it again.
