I was constantly irritated by this book. I kept waiting for a "mystery" to occur...for clues to lead to the conviction of someone else like the synopsis said...but it never came. I was gravely disappointed and bored. I felt all that was wrote was how Ellie loved to go out and order expensive salmon fillets and grilled duck and how Rob was guilty and how bad Ellie felt and waaaahhhh waaaaahhhh waaahhhh. Same thing over and over and over again until the last 2 pages in which she turns all of Ellie's bad childhood memories into the past and forgives people she felt hurt her. Oh and she gets married. And gets the dream house she always wanted. And gets the defense attorney to serve prison time. And sails around the world in 5 hours and also eats a giant blue whale all by herself. It felt like MHC was bored of writing this book because she knew it was a piece of regurgitated garbage so she decided to wrap the whole thing up like a procrastinated high school term paper. Bleh, skip this one.
