I found this novel utterly boring and wrong on so many levels. I think it's the very first novel by Tara Taylor Quinn that I hate.

Finished this book and I still wonder how a woman can love her husband, children, home, and job and still be unhappy and pull away emotionally from her husband. She declares over and over verbally and mentally that she loves, loves, loves him but she is making him miserable and I never figured out what her problem was. In fact I was left wondering if she knew what was making her unhappy.
