Rated of 5
by Joyce S. (Tyrone, GA) Cosy/Thriller/Comedy
Getting into this book was a little difficult for me. Lucy Hamilton seemed a flippant and totally self absorbed stay-at-home mom of a 3 yr old telling a 1st person story that was a bit boring. As insights into her past life unfold she becomes a bit more interesting. The development of her back-story through jumps to tales from the past was not especially smooth and sometimes a bit confusing. Eventually the past and present start intersecting and things move more quickly. By the end of the book I liked her a lot but found myself feeling that too many of the things that happened seemed a little too unbelievable to make me take her and her story seriously.
