On 1/12 Pam M. wrote: To be honest, when I chose this book I was thinking based on the cover and the title that it would be a book of fluff, no substance, some romance novel.

On 5/27 Pam M. wrote: Although this was an interesting book, it will not be one of my favorites. As far as fiction goes, the storyline was , to me, a little corny.
