Snore. Another Lifetime movie script from Patti Callahan Henry. Two thirds into the book i couldn't muster up enough interest to find out what happened. Plastic characters and a less than intersting storyline. I won't be rushing to pick up any of this author's future books.
This book started out to be promising. The first few chapters intrigued me, but as I kept reading, I eventually lost interest in the story and realized that I felt no connection to the characters. I put it down after roughly six chapters and do not feel as if I missed out by not finishing it.
This is another great summer "beach read" by Patti Callahan Henry. She once again does not disappoint! characters well developed, and interesting; poignant plot; read it into the wee hours...hard to put down.
