What did I think of this book? Delightful. Tamara Leigh surprises me in two ways. I usually don't care for first person narrative, but she makes it work. And never before have I read a book in present tense that I liked. But this one I not only liked--I heartily recommend it. Having made some bad choices earlier in her life, Maggie is vulnerable, likable, grown up and, more important, still growing. Tamara Leigh does an excellent job developing her characters. I especially liked a particular scene with Reese, the man who may or may not have fathered Maggie's almost teenaged daughter. Reese has a toothpick habit; he is never without one and he knows how to manipulate it. At one point, a professional opponent of Maggie's tries to face off with Reese--with a toothpick. You'll have to read the book to find out who wins the toothpick duel.
