it was ok
bookshelves: chick-lit
Read in April, 2012

I really liked this author's early sagas about Emma Harte, starting with A Woman of Substance, but her books have gotten flimsier over the years. This one, while not exactly flimsy at 400 pages, focuses on a woman's quest to find her grandmother after learning she did not die in a plane crash. Lots of interesting details about Istanbul but the premise as to why the woman thought her grandmother was dead was weak as well as the instantaneous and convenient love the woman finds. At some points overly broad and at other points overly detailed, it didn't really hold my interest. It's hard when an author you have always counted on for a good, even if chick-lit good, read starts to slip.

Jami I'm glad I saw your review; I had a similar review and was wondering if it was just me. I also had enjoyed her prior books, but could not engage with any of these characters.
