Shirley Kimble

Disappointed
I agree with the preceding book review. Old lady not believable. Big vocabulary but then talks like a hick with "wannas" and "whatchas" and "kindas" and "gottas". That drove me crazy! The plot and settings were novel but the characters never seemed real to me.

Cathy Baron

No substance
I saw this reviewed on the TODAY show and couldn't wait to read it. I was very disappointed. It was written on the par of Mary Higgins Clark - lacked substance - characters not believable.

Sorry because I really wanted to like it. Frank Devord seems like a nice man.
