Not as good as some of her other novels. Her characters were well developed but all they did was fight and it got old fast. ( )

Some parts I thought it was a 3 stars in others it was a 4... I wont fight with myself, I'm giving it a 3 1/2 stars ( )

Really liked, though it was quite a bit lenghty. The characters' development was great and things were explained very thouroughly. The ending was cute, though a bit predictable. ( )

Brilliant! how the main character evolved through out the years! ( )

I love Susan Elizabeth Phillips, but this was not my favorite. I realize that part of the point is Francesca's transition from, well, who she was at the beginning to who she is at the end, but, honestly, there was so much in between stuff that I didn't really like that it was hard to keep reading. Part of it was just some things that were dated, which, I realize, there's really nothing that can be done about that. But there were some attitudes that made me think -- 'wow, we've come a long way,' and, 'thank goodness we've come a long way,' and then, 'we've come such a long way that I really don't enjoy reading about this so I'm not going to.'

As I've stated before, part of my rating system is how much I enjoyed reading a book. The un-put-down-able factor, so to speak. And this probably would have ranked a little higher since, despite what I said above, I actually did start to get into it. But then I hit chapter 12 and I started to look ahead to see what was coming up. (I have a thing about not stopping right before or after chapter 13 [don't ask] and needed to see if it was worth staying up another hour to get through chapters 12, 13, and 14, and it was then that I stumbled upon the nature of the relationship between Dallie and Holly Grace. And although it actually made my heart warm for Dallie in a way it hadn't up until that point, it was something that I just can't deal with in my HEAs. And then I looked a little further and saw how the relationship progresses between Dallie and Francesca, and although the end was what I wanted, it sure took a long and painful time to get there. Too long and painful for me to want to keep going what with everything in between.

So I lightly skimmed the rest and I'll look forward to seeing them in the later books of the series, but I probably won't come back to it to read it in detail.

With that said, I have to comment that I really enjoyed the Dallie/Skeet scenes. That almost made me keep going just by itself. ( )
