it was ok
bookshelves: chick-lit, brain-candy
Read in February, 2011

I gave this two stars because I was hoping this would be really good brain candy. Instead it was more like a sour patch kid for my brain - it started off nice and sweet and like it was going to be really good. However, as I read more and more and none of the characters ever really got developed - the just did stuff - and the ones that the author did try to develop fell flat - I find myself wondering why I was reading the book at all. I have taken several yoga classes in my life and most of the time, the teacher would use both the English and the Sanskrit name of the pose. The fact that 99% of the yoga poses mentionned in this book (by either teachers or students) were referred to only by their Sanskrit name irked me - it seemed unnecessary and even condescending.

I guess there is already a second novel in this "series" being written by Ms. Mitchell. I will not be reading it.
