I guess I'm the only person who wasn't impressed with this book. I found it too much a derivative of Bridges of Madison County. I also can't suspend disbelief enough to believe in mature people being stupid enough to "fall in love" in two days. In two days, you can only fall in love with an image since you have to know someone to really fall in love with them. I thought the author "told" the story instead of showing and making me feel the emotions of the characters. I found the relationship of the two main characters much less interesting than any of the other relationships in the book. All in all, it did not knock my socks off... or even loosen a shoelace.
