Read this in a few days after looking for a light read. This certainly fit the bill. Interestingly though, in addition to all the typical characters you would expect in a beach read, the members of the primary characters of one family, struggled with mental illness. This part raised the level up a notch, since it was developed quite well.
However, the drama of everyone else in the novel drowned out that little story. Doesn't it always seem to work that way?! Not bad.

Barbara My current light read is Bertie's Project. As I love Edinburgh it's doubly good.

Toni Thanks Barbara, I might have to give it a try.

Toni Barbara, since The Bertie Project is part of a series, and smackdab in the middle, would I be able to understand what's going on, with whom, coming in cold?
