  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Johanna | 7/15/2012

    " I'm never fond of books that are written where everything falls into place. As much as I wanted to love this book I found it unrealistic and a tad too long. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Isabelle | 6/26/2011

    " I just wanted to read something fluffy that I didn't have to pay that close attention too. It was extremely predictable, but good enough for a quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gena | 6/19/2011

    " A nice romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Eckel | 3/22/2010

    " I read this book and then I read it again. Of course I didn't figure this out until about page 280 the second time around. I generally don't try and reread. Too many books and so little time. Must be a plot line I enjoy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracee Lutes | 3/7/2010

    " Very fun read. I love to laugh when I read a good romance and this one is certainly fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gardavson | 6/22/2009

    " Good book. Liked the characters. Some of the plot was extrenuous but all in all a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cherry-Ann Smart | 3/8/2009

    " Not exactly a page turner but a comfortable read. Totally engaged until the ending when the reunion with three friends threw me especially since I read the book as a standalone and not in the order of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 6/4/2008

    " A pleasant surprise! Maxwell makes characters with distinct voices, and the plot was interesting. I found no grammatical errors. The eye-roll romance moments were kept to a minimum. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Krista | 12/18/2007

    " This book started out great, but the second half just felt forced. It was like Ms. Maxwell was following a over-dramatic plot checklist. "
