Thank you St. Martin’s Press for allowing me to read and review this book.
1. The writing was good and the story flew naturally. The last twenty pages hooked me and I was curious to know the ending, although I didn’t like the epilogue.
2. Rose annoyed me in some parts of the book, especially her behaviour towards her kids and husband. I really liked Josh and I felt sympathetic to him, such an amazing husband.
3. What I didn’t like too much was that at some point Rose kept bringing Hugo up and she thought only of him, even when she wasn’t supposed to.
4. I loved the prologue and the first chapter, I loved the way the author described Rose’s past concerning him, but as the story kept going the style of writing wasn’t so good as it was in the beginning. I don’t know how to explain it, but it lost me somewhere.
I’m so sad that I put only three stars, because this is the author’s first book and I wanted to like it. I hate when I don’t like books that new authors write, I want to encourage them and make others love their work. But, this book I guess wasn’t for me.
