However, I could not help but think that 184 pages of heart-wrenching domestic torment could have been resolved by one of the characters simply saying, "Honey, I want kids." I mean, really! How difficult would that be to do? It was so painfully obvious that this was the main problem in their marriage.
But hey--if one of the characters had said that early in the story, there would be no story, would there? And that wouldn't make a good Harlequin romance, would it?
This novel is a fast and involved read. You understand both characters so well that they seem to come alive. They are well-rounded and realistic. The secondary characters are great as well.
I became emotionally involved in this book and felt for the characters and their situation. The story stayed with me long after it was over.
Sandra Marton is a wonderful writer. I have 25 of her novels and she has quickly become one of my all time favorite authors. I recommend all of her novels!
