I yield around 75%. Nothing has happened. Nothing. I just don't care :/

If anyone cares to know more, please go to this very helpful review. She saved me hours of grief with that spoiler. I can move on now, life is too short.

I enjoyed this book, but it was really looooong! Usually when I pick up a book I cant put it down...this book I put down for about four days. Id read it off in on when I had time but I just didnt feel like reading hours and hours. I like the story line, I just feel that most of the book is full of filler material and not story. You feel bad for Rachel, especially since shes lost three husbands in less than four years and is treated horribly by the towns people who call her a "black widow". Danie ...more

Lamest. Book. Ever. The writing is reminiscent of a pre-teen girl's diary. The author wrote pages sexually graphic prose (and not very well) but the strongest epithet that her leading man can come up with is "Stars Above!"??? How is that supposed to be believable? Sadly, my OCD made me finish the book. There's two weeks of my life I'll never get back.
