I’m baffled as to why this book has such good ratings. It’s predictable, overflowing with clichés, and just generally poorly written. Every character is dysfunctional yet loveable, which just makes me gag it’s so forced and contrived. The premise is solid, but the author blunders her way through the story with cheesy sentimentality, obliterating any chance of enjoyment. I kept thinking it might get better, but you can piece together the big “revelation” half way through, which makes finishing the book tedious work. I’ll be sure to add this author to my “Be sure to avoid” list.
