I have seen so many positive reviews, not only for this book, but for this author in general. I am almost embarrassed to admit that I haven't read a title by her yet, so this was my first. Maybe I had set my expectations too high, but I didn't think this was a great book. Good yes, great no. I liked the premise of the story, and I liked the characters. But overall the book was just a little too mushy, a little too cliche. Although I didn't think this was a super book, I am not giving up on this author. I will definitely try another one of her novels. And while this wasn't the book for me, it wouldn't stop me from recommending it to others, especially fans of romance or family dramas.....

Great, thanks Dara! I was going to ask for a recommendation. I know I have a few of her other books on my TBR shelf at home but I don't think I have that one.....

If you are a big fan of Hannah then you will probably like it! I have been reading a lot of drama lately. Maybe I need to step back and read a good, old-fashioned murder mystery now.....
