I cannot say enough awesome things about her first 2 books. This book was a major major major disappointment. The characters were "meh", the plot was so tepid it WISHED it could be called lukewarm, the descriptions of the time spent in the Philippines were so extraneous and exhausting...

While I was interested enough to keep reading to see if it got better, I was NOT sad when I finally finished it, which is exactly the opposite of how I remember feeling when I finished her other 2 books.

I had hoped to disprove all of the naysayers who read this book before me and given it terrible reviews. Surely they were just missing the magic that she works with the English language, her sparkling abilities to make relationships robust and glowing...

Nope. This book just sucks compared to the first 2. Don't judge De los Santos if this is the only thing you have read from her - it's simply not a fair judgement!

Frances Scott Thanks for this tip. This was my first book by this author and I was disappointed. I will give her another try.
