This is the fourth Nicholas Sparks book I've read (read them all within a couple of weeks of each other - started with Dear John and ended with Message in a Bottle). I loved Dear John and A Walk to Remember. Message in a Bottle...not so much.

Although the story itself was quite charming and I found the characters to be likable, as I started the book I already had an inkling as to how it was going to end. It was very predictable, and it lacked the emotion of Dear John or Walk to Remember.

I like Nicholas Sparks and will continue reading his books, especially when I need a good cry...but I'll wait a while before picking up one of his books. If for no other reason but to allow myself a clear and fresh view of the new book.
