Rainbow is a hard read for me. I like both Quinn and Meredith and when the story is just about them it is wonderful! Because of events in their past trust does not come easy for them and neither does love. They are both pretending to be someone they are not and they both have secrets to hide from each other; they try so hard not to love each other.

It had that peculiarly American thing of trying to be a book that is both full of subtlety and deception AND have everything completely explained and spelt out. It just doesn't work! Nuances, spelt out, cease to be nuances, folks. Plus several characters had to act extremely oddly to keep the various deceptions going.
