The characters were written to perfection, each one likable or (un) likable. Hell- even the bastards were likable in this book... they were written so well that you loved to hate them.
The scenery, the land, and the house played a HUGE par ...more

There is so much going on—too much. And there is editing to be done.
And who said that this has any romantic elements? The romance (as weak as it is) swoops in at the last chapter and hits you over the head to convince you that it was there all along.

I got to page 63 before I realized that I just didn't care enough about any of the characters to want to pick the book up again. I usually give a book 100 pages before I quit reading but I couldn't go any farther with this one.
The main character, Sarah, decides to go back to the old house she grew up in and renovate it. We get the impression that she's had this plan in the works ...more
ughh. Best selling author my ass. I have so many things wrong with this book, one of my biggest pet peeves is when authors mention something, foreshadow to something.... AND THEY NEVER ACTUALLY EXPLAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Plot Holes) Like dude, you had a whole f'ckn novel to clear up all this shit you mentioned before.
