i love catherine anderson and this is one of my favourite novels. you can read it again and again. if by the end of reading this book, you haven't fallen in love with Parker Harrigan, then you haven't got a heart. this book was particularly interesting to me because i work in the domestic violence field, so it was great to read a story with a positive ending, be it fictional. catherine is so good at picking up real life issues and writing them into her books in a way that isn't in your face, but it helps to raise awareness to people that normally wouldn't know alot about these subject matters.
