it was ok
bookshelves: 2-star, chick-lit, own, adult-fiction
Read in July, 2009

I gave this book two stars because I honestly found it okay. I thought that it could have done more of some things and less of others.

The author's writing style was, for the most part, pretty good. There were a couple of parts which I thought could have been better, but it was otherwise okay. Sometimes there would be a paragraph that was phrased really well and struck an emotional chord, but there were so few of these.

I found the plot of this novel imbalanced. The love story was more passionate than romantic, and I tend to prefer romantic, but that's personal. However, the author could have done more with the romantic aspect, and I was disappointed that he didn't give it more of a back story. I also thought that the non-romantic stuff got to be too much like a soap opera. Although in the end I thought the author made a few points about progress, small town life, and community, I didn't want to have to read about a bunch of stuff that sounded like it was from a soap opera.

If you like a passionate love story, you may enjoy this book.
