My Thoughts...

This is not the first book I've read by Ms. Delinsky. I usually enjoy her books, however, when I started reading her books it was her later books I read and I really enjoyed them. Unfortunately I did not like this book. I could not relate to the characters, Jessica was just to whiny and how can I say this kindly...she was undecisive, stubborn, and way too into herself.

Another thing I didn't realize when I started to read this book, that it was the first book of a trilogy. So there...more
This book is the first one of three books in one written by Barbara Delinsky...all written in 1990, so the settings of the stories are quite dated. I can't complain...I bought it for 50 cents at St. Timothy's yard sale.

it is an easy read, I hope in the second book the characters become more intriguing and the the plot more interesting all in all a story you really care about and can't put the book down. which was not the case with book one but will give book two a chance.
I really enjoyed this book. Great characters, and not too many dated references except that the Hero served in Vietnam. Downloaded the other 2 in the trilogy.
Nothing extremely exciting but its a cute and realistic story. ill continue to read the others
If you want some mind candy and a soap opera type of story this is it.

I read a few negative reviews but I liked it. It was light, fast reading and I just finished some heavy pieces so it was a nice relief.
Written in 1990 it feels its age. Romance based on heroine with old mansion family home that needs to be sold and/or restored...enter architect...who was bully in her past. You can figure out the rest.
I read one of her books a few years ago and I adored it but this book was just awful. It was mostly terrible, unrealistic dialogue. The characters are very one-dimensional and the ending came out of nowhere. Nothing was resolved except two people who are practically strangers wanting babies.
I found the character of Jessica to be super annoying. I just wanted to shake some sense into her! The character of Carter was great and he put up with alot from her. I wouldn't recommend this short story at all.
Not bad, quick read, nothing to write home about.

I was born and raised in suburban Boston. My mother’s death, when I was eight, was the defining event of a childhood that was otherwise ordinary. I took piano lessons and flute lessons. I took ballroom dancing lessons. I went to summer camp through my fifteenth year (in Maine, which explains the setting of so many of my stories), then spent my sixteenth summer learning to type and to drive (two sk...more
