I normally enjoy Slaughters work, but this book? I have to agree with the other comments. I usually give a book the 99 page test and if I've not "gotten into" it, then it probably won't happen and I'm done. But for whatever reason, I stayed with this. By the end, part of me was glad I did. The other part is kicking itself hahaha If you want to fall asleep easily at bedtime, THIS book will do it, it did me. Still I stuck with it, thinking maybe she was having a "bad" day-week-month-year. I did finish but it took me a lot longer than my normal. I only gave it I think 3 1/2 stars. I'm taking a break from Slaughter for a bit. Happy Reading!
