really liked it

I wasn't sure about this one going in. First, the cover raised a lot of questions, and say what you want about not judging a book by its cover, but I totally do it, and this isn't a cover that says "Ruth's Type of Book." I read the blurb, though, and--most importantly--was privy to some pretty deep discussion regarding the plot via an online forum. After I read what some readers were saying, I decided to give the book a shot. I'm glad I did. I enjoyed it way more than I expected, given that I generally avoid romancy, "book club" type books (which is what the cover suggested to me). The issues raised in the book are handled with nuance, and I can imagine certain story elements sparking robust discussion. There were a couple of side characters I'd like to have seen fleshed out more fully, but things moved along at such a good clip that I wouldn't want the pace dragged down with unnecessary development.

Note: Emily Conrad and I share a publisher.
