I enjoy the setting in this story. Peurto Rico is beautifully described, as is the village and homes. Both Katie and Ramon are great characters, and they have a great story.

Somehow, this story was told all wrong. Shocking revelations were handled badly, with a smaller impact than they could have had. There are only a few glimpses into Ramon's point of view, but his motivation seems shallow and relies heavily on the reader knowing lots of "macho" men. A page, and everything is okay again.

There are so many places in this story where one of them could have said something to explain away the miscommunications, but they never did. It was more annoying than enjoyable.

This book is okay, but it doesn't achieve its potential.
