Read from May 11 to 22, 2011 — I own a copy, read count: 1

I won this book in one of the Goodreads giveaways. I made a prediction that I wasn't going to like it. What a stupid thing to do. It took me awhile to read the first 3o pages or so and then I was hooked. I couldn't put it down, I took it everywhere with me, much to my children's dismay.

The characters were delightful, bad, good and in-between. I wanted to hate Mark, but the way he was portrayed I just knew he wasn't all bad and there was hope for him yet. I also wanted to label Lucas as a womanizing French snob but again, the way Ms. Gantz described him, I knew there was more to him than met the eye. Jared was a mystery and a surprise altogether. Althea's situation was heartbreaking, I wanted find her mother and punch her in the nose. Lola and Annie were fun and reminded me of some of my friends from my single days. When you have a talented writer like Ms. Gantz to develop and put all these characters together with such a clever storyline you have one hell of a novel.

The storyline kept me interested, it was not at all predictable and as I said before I couldn't put it down once I got started. Ms. Gantz has the ability to make you fall in love with a location and it's inhabitants to the point that you wish they were real so you could make a visit!

Brava Ms. Gantz! Please continue writing and keep us all posted on your next novel.
