Horribly uninteresting story. Rebecca Brandewyne has written some of my favorite and I guess no one is perfect, but I have to wonder how this even got published. Sorry to be so harsh on it, but I couldn't even finish it because of the boredom. I just didn't care what happened to any of the characters. They could've all died and I would've done an Irish Jig to express my joy at it being over.

This is on of Rebecca Brandewyne's safe books. I started it because I had read some reviews that it was clean and had an interesting story.

Raamat sellest, kas laste vahelisest sõprusest võib kasvada midagi enamat, ahnusest, headuse

I found this lurking in the depths of my TBR pile and decided to give it a try. After a few chapters, the story just didn't gel. What I read wasn't terrible, but it was extremely boring.

I was really surprised that I enjoyed this book as much as I did, but its actually turned out to be a great book.

A very good read full of mystery and romance without all the sex that seems to be in books today.

Not very well written....too sophomoric and not really very interesting.
