The story itself is pretty good and the characters are very likable, but not quite believable. It seemed to me that the author couldn't make up her mind whether she was writing a chick lit book or a deep, psychological one. It brings up so many issues, but fails to go anywhere with them or develop any of the characters to their real potential. The book had so much potential, and I am very disappointed that it didn't achieve anywhere close to what it could've been.
If you're looking for a good beach read, I'd pick something else. I don't regret reading this book, but I sure wouldn't have wanted it to have been the book I took on vacation. Hopefully, the author's writing will mature and future books will live up to their potential. I just wish this one had.
The ending wrapped up nicely, but one thread was never really resolved. What happened with Val's daughter?
