I thought the book was going to be good, there was even modest interest when I read the blurb and description but I found myself lost for words when I read it. I didn't like it at all. It was way too obvious and the hero and heroine were just a bunch of idiots.

I enjoyed this, but it had the potential to be so much stronger.

Too much internalizing over the same issue by the heroine. (I really hate ongoing internal monotonous) I would have much preferred to wade into more interesting waters. Was he ever unfaithful? How did he orchestrate it? When did he stop? Was it love or something else?

He was very charming. (sigh.....)

She was too self absorbed for my taste.

This is my all-time favorite and until now I haven't found another - still looking- that contains the correct amount of jealousy, angst, effort to hide one's feelings, and I also like the feel of separation, when you know the couple belongs together, and all of that so artfully described right until the final turn and their love confession.

this cud have been so much better! claire was actually very annoying and jumped to conclusions quickly. it was obvious jake was not having an affiar and he was jealous but in love wid her, i'm not convinced. the book was boring! one minute she was leaving him, the next she was not. lol!

This book bored me to tears. It was more like a memoir of a women with really low self esteem. The book just went on and on about the hero not loving her. I wanted to yell at her to get a life. I felt the Hero never had a chance.

I can't say I really liked this book. It was very predictable for me. In my opinion, it's a very forgettable book.

Lack of communication.

Diana Hamilton was born in a English town. Wanting to be a country child, her imagination came into play at an early age, transforming a neighbor’s tree into a forest, a hole in a stone wall into a gingerbread house, a gas puddle into a fairyland, complete with mountains, lakes and flower meadows. She loathed housework but made to do her share, to lessen the boredom, she told herself stories, in a ...more
