Hmmm, it's rarely that I finish a book that I am going to grade an F, but I was also curious and in hope that it maybe would become better, however, that wasn't the case.
I really liked the idea of a mystery plot woven into the general love story, unfortunately, we don't get to know a lot about the mystery but would have to buy the next instalment which is a real let-down because I was looking forward to the gradually learn more about Rebecca who was clearly the most interesting person in the whole set-up. Sara is an ok heroine, albeit not the most charismatic and outstanding person. I had bigger problems with Mark Compton, Sara's boss, and Chris Merit, Sara's love interest.
Without telling too much, Mark plays a prominent role in the series and will get his own happily ever after later-on. He is also one of the most unfriendly, disagreeable and obnoxious characters I have met lately. Yeah, yeah, he is probably deeply hurt and blusters his way through life by being an ass, but honestly, I don't care. And because he has such an integral part to the story, he, too, was one reason why I don't continue the series.
The icing on the cake, however, is dear and lovely Chris who is such a boring and unmemorable person, I was hard pressed to believe he is a successful painter and chick magnet. Also, important to note Mark has a BIG BAD secret, namely that he belongs to a secret sex club and is into pain. *headdesk* Call the news people, this is such a surprise! F
