There is no great depth to this story or its characters, yet it's not badly written, and the plot holds it together. The relationship between Therese and the youngest Bruneau boy, Rusty, is nicely drawn; and there is an interesting play of family loyalties - wondering which side of the fence each character would finally come down on is what keeps the reader hooked.
Although I was on the verge of putting this book down at the end of each chapter, it kept me just intrigued enough to want to see how the story panned out, and I found that I enjoyed it much more than I expected to.
