Entertaining enough, but it didn't have me turning pages and enthralled as Hawkins's debut book. The story line is slow in the first half of the book, but picks the pace up in the second half. I found Jules's character's wallowing in self-pity in the beginning overwhelming and there is too much anger in other characters. The ending was frustrating to me because Hawkins allows loose ends remain loose - as a reader I don't particular like it. With the rest of the characters, I felt like the author placed dust sheets over their stories to wrap them up quickly. Overall, give it a go: it's a quick summer read, but not for must-keep-in-my-library category.
