it was ok
Read from January 16 to 21, 2012

I’ll fully admit I’m not the target audience for this book. I have a low tolerance for books about entitled white women with amazing lives who get a divorce and go on some adventure full of handsome men and self-centered soul searching. Why can’t they focus on everything good about their lives rather than obsessing over the clearly inferior ex-husband? Grow up and enjoy life, ladies. Anyway, this entitled-white-woman story involves Bainbridge Island outside of Seattle (it sounds lovely) and a family mystery (that’s not much of a mystery). The protagonist’s summer fling from high school is thrown in for kicks, along with a handsome neighbor who seems perfect but might have a dark secret of his own. The mystery / second story is, well, it has some entertaining parts, but I didn’t like it (and I can’t say why I didn’t like it without giving away the plot). The one good thing I can say about this book is that I very much want to visit Bainbridge Island now. Not recommended.
