Wish I were there

Loved Cat island. Wish I could go there to live. Hayden and Addrieanne two of my favorite names. Love their story and am looking forward to the next book.

Fun, easy read. Something about it made me feel like I had already read it. So I guess it's similar to another story out there.

It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either. The story just didn't grab me, despite an interesting premise. Grammar and punctuation errors are what finally sealed it though. Every page had at least one, and most had a lot more. I just couldn't keep punishing myself like that...

I'm glad I read other books of hers before this one. If this had been my introduction to the author I doubt I would have given her a second glance. Her more recent books are so much more polished and very enjoyable to

Quick, easy and funny read sans forced drama for a change. I definitely got a kick out of it. The narrative is 1st person(POV), which is a big fat plus in my book.

It's somewhere between 3 and 4 stars. Definitely closer to 4 though.
