Anyone claiming this as just a run of the mill romance has missed the strong heart and emotions of this book. The plot has been done before - two women falling for the same man. If I recall, one of the Bronte books touched just such a theme. Anyone care to remind me which one?
But Freethy brings a whole fresh feel to this love triangle, so you've just got to keep turning those pages to find out how it all turns out.
Tessa and Sam really came alive for me as characters and the descriptions of the Oregon coast were wonderful. At times I felt transported there, which is just how good novels should be. I felt a bit guilty because I picked this one up for free. I'd have gladly paid for or five dollars for it.
