Plenty of things that I could point out about this book: redundant; obvious big bad rich cad; redundant; Jane Eyre-esque endin

Fun summer read! Main character seemed younger than the age that she is portrayed...more like 31 rather than 39. This isn't a mind bender not filled with steamy scenes so it is a nice summer read on vaca with the family.
