liked it

It was a sweet little book. The author spends too much time on other, distracting plot lines--friends with horrible husbands or eating disorders. I skimmed a lot and basically ignored the friends. You could see where it was going long before it got there, making me impatient for the ending and frustrated by all the distractions of side stories. However, I enjoyed the ending and felt it worked. I would have loved the book if it had been a tighter story. The last 50 pages were better than the rest of the book.
