My first time reading a book from this Author, although I listened to the audio version. The narrators voice was very pleasant to listen to and spoke very well each characters voice tones.
This is actually my first time reading a fiction story, I read historical and non fiction as a rule but something about this stories blurb sounded so interesting. I enjoyed it very much. An interesting plot line that kept me wondering the whole story through
This book is lovely if you have a second grade reading level and like stories that are completely ridiculous. Every single female character in this book is chock full of desperation and naïveté. Add some eating disorders, alcoholism, and shocking (errr....or not) secrets and you have a terrible, predictable, and poorly written waste of money. Fail. Big time.
Average book, not enough entertainment for the price. Wait for the sale.
