Not a horrible read, but it was predictable. This is a story about a horney, self-centered priest. I didn’t care for the main character so it was hard to finish the book. There was too much winning in the dialogue to let me care about the priest.
The fun part of the book was the location. The town, Irontown , was near my hometown. The characters went to Pittsburg for fun. The local references kept me reading along with the fact that the author is my husband’s cousin.
