Shame on you, Mr Baldacci!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: One Summer (Paperback)
I struggled through the first quarter of this book in the hope that something, anything, believable would happen. What did happen was complete and utter tosh, from the stroppy teenage daughter (beautiful and talented, of course), to the miraculous recovery from a deathbed and the cringingly awful love letters written on said deathbed (yawn, yawn). I don't read books which contain this kind of silly, sentimental rubbish and certainly will not be reading the rest of the book as I can see from other disappointed reviewers that this theme runs entirely from beginning to end of the book. Shame on you, Mr Baldacci, for thinking that this ridiculous story would appeal to your loyal fans.
