I think there was a little too much cheesy LDS stuff in this one. I mean, I'm an active member of the church and love it, but I don't like books that shove religion at you in a non-realistic way or an over-dramatic way just to teach something. I was also getting tired of the exact same thing happening over again:

She woke up, she took a shower, she got dressed, she went down to breakfast, she got changed into work clothes, she cleaned the rooms and delivered fresh towels, she talked to this person, she talked to this person, she went here, she got changed for dinner, she ate dinner, she tried to clean up but was told not to, she went to the beach, she went to sleep. This happened a lot. There was no variation in Mary Grace's life unless someone was trying to cause trouble.

Mary Grace was proposed to before she even told the guy she loved him and vice versa. And then he kept bugging her about it. It wasn't realistic.

Plus... cheesy depictions of an active LDS person's life. I just wasn't a fan.
