Reviewed for netgalley, I have to admit that I have heard wonderful things about this author, but I could never quite warm up to the storyline of this book nor the author's writing. There was a "been there done that" light feeling to it. It left me feeling kind of empty and I was never able to warm up to it. I actually found myself skimming portions of the book to get it finished. I will say that a chunk of my GR friends did rate this as a 3/4 star book, but I just couldn't rate mine that high.
