really liked it

Sophie Penhelligan has a great life., with her career being a journalist friends and a boyfriend Tim who has been there for two years, though her relationship with Tim turns her off time and again., she hopes that someday he will propose her..And then eventually does get engaged but then she gets engaged to the rock star Dan too...The book opens up with a flashback though a slow runner things got a lot better as I hung on to it...Tim is shy, can never really express himself always messes up things and tries hard to make it up to her at times forcing his way , he has a weird obsession with slugs, forgets his rings when he planned to propose later apoligising .....That is him a cross contrast of Sophie that makes her think something is definitely wrong somewhere...All along the way Sophie has been a great fan having a larger crush for Dan the rock star and a member of the famous rockband TUSK ..Dan is portrayed as every girl's dream and luckily for Sophie Dan re-entering her life, did I say re-enter?? well she did meet him back in her teenage years at back stage prior to one of his performance., and now she ends up being proposed, she is in cloud nine (obviously) with chorus of angels singing around her but the only trouble is that she is already engaged to Tim.... Kudos to Wells for bringing out the teenage adrenaline rush in Sophie .,when she meets Dan, those crazy moments are real fun to read...But for now she is with Dan too.,in short she is engaged to both men...Things take quite a roller coaster ride and before she gets a hang on things everything seems to fall apart..There is suspense, thrill, adventure around Sophie, never a dull moment with her.. Edinburg mystery was well done too...Sophie can get on nerves at times driving you to the edge ,in spite of her smartness she can act real stupid., but she is quick enough to reconcile and correct her mistakes but at times the situation itself don't go as she wants complications upon complications..Sophie keeps pushing her morale benchmark at times getting things right and at times losing it...The ending was a quiet unexpected one and I liked Wells for that..This book is a wonderful for a relaxing read....
