I really like Christina Dodd...but I could predict at least the first 80 pages...it was almost detail for detail on Sabrina. Still, Sabrina (the latter version) is one of my fave movies, so I did enjoy the book.
This was a good book and fun to read. I enjoyed the Celeste Garrick interaction, the children, actually I enjoyed all the characters. I've enjoyed several of Christina Dodd's books and this was another good one with a surprisingly strong female character.
This is one of my favorites by Christina Dodd. It puts me in mind of the plot for the movie "Sabrina" with Harrison Ford. At least that's what I pictured as I read it. :) I liked both characters and wouldn't mind being stuck in that room with the hero! Hot, hot, hot!
