I read this book because I got it from my book club after not responding to my main selections. It's hard for me not to read a book if I have it. This was not very all.

Nothing to get excited about. I don't think Jonathan Plummer has a future as an author. He was smart to capitalize on getting this book out early after the break up with Terri McMillan, there goes his 15 minutes of fame.........
