if I didn't read the title I wouldn't believe it was a Danielle Steel book. I'm still having trouble with it. the story was cute. the narrator was very good. I wouldn't recommend this book. I feel like I wasted my time. DS needs a vacation.

The storyline became a bit thin and drawn out about 2/3 way through. As though filling up the required word count. But I stayed with it until the end and enjoyed the ending.

I found the storyline thin and too predictable. The narration by a male voice is, in my opinion, a poor match for the story and the main character.

The intelligence of the main character is off the charts. I loved the strength and endurance she practiced when life threw her curveballs.
