I thought this book started off great and I was beginning to think I'd be pleasantly surprised, but about halfway through, well, the cheese just got too thick for me. I seriously thought I was going to gag on all the melodrama. This is a Lifetime movie times 100. Actually, it might work better as a Lifetime movie. It should star Ann Heche, who narrated the audio version, and she was really the best part. I guess if you like sappy, sentimental, forced plot-line romances, then this book is for you.
