I really enjoyed this book. The description on Goodreads warns that it's not high drama, which I forgot until I just looked at it again. I wish I would have remembered that because I'm used to drama and I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop, so to speak. It never did. You know from the beginning how this story is going to go, yet it's still such a fun and enjoyable ride.
The story jumps back and forth between two timelines. Yo ...more
