By some miracle I won this in the first Goodreads First Reads I ever entered, so I feel actually writing a review is in order.
It's not typically the type of book I would pick up - it's rather a beach read and chic-lit isn't my favorite. The plot felt a little drawn out, particularly in the middle and was, of course, fairly predictable. I did, however, love most of Rachel's internal monologue and her (sometimes flawed) evaluation of herself and others. The dynamic between her and Darcy was also interesting. Sometimes I definitely felt akin to Rachel in the way she viewed herself and the world (tho not to her actions).
I'm going to have to pick up the second book now, written from Darcy's perspective, so I can see inside her crazy head.
