I fell in love all over again
I first read this book a while ago and went back to re-read it. I fell in love all over again. This character has been through so much, and all you want is for her to find happiness and love. She is beautifully written in a strong, independent way. I related with a few of her issues and was glad to see how she overcame them and moved on. Usually, you read about the virgin and ditzy wishy-washy main character. I was glad this author went with a ‘real-life’ woman who had ‘real-life’ issues. This book has it all. You laugh, cry, and want to reach through a few pages and throat punch a few people. Anxiously waiting for the next book!!!
