** spoiler alert ** I kept reading because I was drawn to Mexico in winter, because I wanted to know how she was going to resolve the sxual tnsion with the stranger and I was a little intrigued as to how to forma novel – I am pretty sure this caliber is w/in my reach. Mildly entertaining. What didn't work: I didn't like the main character's sappy personality. So dependent and predicatable. I ddin't buy it that Joe Cruz really gained anything from her except sex. Too clean: brother had tried to contact – blame on dead mother; twins for brother “Maggie” that main character initiated the sex with Joe. Dumb that she's not going to feel guilty for anything anymore -covers her affair as opposed to deaths of family members what about her hsusband? She can't forgive herself for him. Very post modern concept to justify moment for what “I need” divorced from context.
