Typically chick lit/beach read. Nothing amazing, but good for what it is. It's a perfect summer at the beach book. Doesn't require much thought, but no gaping plot holes or obnoxious typos/grammar mistakes/stiff dialogue/etc. An easy, light read.
Again, typical women's fiction. It's about feelings and learning and self-discovery and romance. It's not an engrossing can't-put-it-down read, but it's also a great beach book. It holds your attention well enough and is easy to enjoy but also easy to put down. My only complaint is that it is just like a million other chick lit/women's lit books out there about the same thing. It's pretty interchangable with any other beach reads, but it's good for what it is.
I recommend that you pick up a copy and take it on vacation, read it on an airplane, by the pool, etc. It's an easy read and you don't have to be fully committed to every sentence in order to get it. It's the sitcom of books - good for a diversion but doesn't require much of an investment on the part of the reader.
I am grateful to TLC Books for the opportunity to review this one.
