This book is set on a timeline of just one day; however there is a lot of looking back, into the past, a past that has shaped this day, the 45th birthday of Agnetha.
The characters are totally loveable, except for one huge exception, and this exception is the cause of much heartache. However, she is also responsible, in a very round about way—and with no effort on her part—for the happily ever after that the reader is hanging out for. This HEA is the culmination of years and years where a secret heartache is carried around by the main character. She lives her life...a life of blissful highs and despondent lows— a life not too dissimilar to a fair proportion of this crazy world’s population.
This is a book that makes you ache for two people who had their dream snatched from them by a so called friend, and it makes you want to commit violence against that so called friend.
I have never read anything by Shari Low before but I will certainly be reading more.
