liked it

I ended up liking this book better than I initially thought I would. At first it kind of got on my nerves because the characters, especially the teenage daughters talked in a very unrealistic dialogue, using language that real teenagers would never use. The mom, Linda, after divorcing her husband, moved her and her two daughters back to her hometown in Charleston, SC. She immediately lands a job as a restaurant manager and by the end of the book she’s engaged to the owner, despite them never having gone on a date. That part bugged me as well, but it had its share of twists and a happy ending, so I liked it pretty good. I give it a C++.
