Well, I read 21 pages... before throwing it in the burn barrel, anyhow.

What a horrible, horrible book. An 'Inspirational' novel, it's the story about an upright, christian girl who is a despicable liar. Already I'm angry.

I guess the premise of this book didn't hit me well to start with. I loved the characters and thought they were well fleshed out, but I didn't like the deception or how everyone jumped in on it. Also, I found myself asking as I do with so many Christian romances, where is the passion? I had really hoped for something more all the way around on this one.
