I'll try and be brief with this one. Several thing's I found wrong with this book. Firstly, the synopsis on the back indicates it will be a book about Sam and Alyssa. Don't buy this if that's what your expecting. It's a book 'involving' Sam and Alyssa but there are far too many other characters and side stories involving those characters to keep up with as your reading. Secondly, for those thinking of purchasing, don't mistake this for a 'light read'. It's most certainly not. Don't get me wrong, I like to mix things up myself, sometimes I like hard, long reads, sometimes light, short reads but for me the book seemed for lack of a better word 'all over the place'. I've enjoyed Suzanne Brockmann in the past but this book just seemed somewhat pointless and is definitely an 'in-between' book. Sometimes I felt like I was skipping over/glossing over parts of the book and hence why I perhaps didn't get emotionally involved or enjoyed the story very much. I found it didn't catch my interest, not to say other readers wouldn't enjoy it. I actually found the book to be more about Jen and Dan as opposed to Sam and Alyssa which is perhaps why I was annoyed the synopsis seemed misleading. Anywho, the one thing I did like was how protective and loving Sam was towards Alyssa although for me, there should have been more romance scene's throughout and less descriptive 'serious' scene's. I give it just short of 3 stars.
