    The Sweetheart Deal
    I gave this book a low rating because I thought the premise was good, but the writing was weak. The idea of a man making his best friend promise to marry his wife if he should die is an intriguing idea. This book is something that you would pick up at the airport to read on a plane, or a beach read. It was pleasant enough, but once read completely forgotten.

    The dialogue was very much like a soap opera, the plot was completely predictable. It is tragic to lose a spouse, but after awhile the character of "Audrey" just got on my nerves. However, the sections that were written from the boys' point of view were done extremely well. That was the best part of the book.

    I guess this book could have some interesting discussion points for a book club; especially if the discussion was centered around personal loss and grieving.
