First, a confession--I only read about 150 pages of this book, the rest I heavily skimmed. If I could have given it two and a half stars, I would have. This book starts out promising, but it gets awfully muddled about halfway through. The author doesn't seem to know whether she wants to write a serious book--hence, all the literary epigraphs that begin each chapter--or a saucy one, given the shockingly smutty way in which she describes sex (and I say shocking only because it doesn't match the rest of the book in tone). The plot twists and easy resolutions were pat, and I am really disappointed that I didn't like this more.

Sherry I agree that the author couldn't make up her mind - the tone changed halfway through - a bit disconcerting
