Good story, but slow start.

I was surprised by this book, mostly because I didn't expect to enjoy it at all going in. I found it for free online and decided to read it as part of an a-z book title reading challenge.

The story opens in Nice, France on Bastille Day, 1965. Navy fighter pilot Clay Stoner meets debutante Marianna Haizet at a nightclub where their mutual friends, newlyweds Vic and Darcy, arrange to meet. Clay and Marianna kind of connect, but he thinks she's a tease and she's worried he's getting the wrong idea. Parting without commitments, neither thinks they'll ever see each other again, but soon they're proven wrong. Their casual romance is marked by tragedy, love, and betrayal. Both insist on no commitments, but don't completely stick to that mantra.

One of the things I liked about this book was that it takes on an element of intrigue and danger about midway through, drawing away from the romance angle. At that point, it began to remind me of The Firm. Another thing I liked was the immersion into the times and especially the Vietnam conflict. Clay and Marianna's romance is colored by the conflict, and Clay's views and actions related to it take their lives in an unexpected direction.

On a mixed note, the level and quality of the details in the story reflect solid research, but at times the story becomes bogged down in them. I appreciated the thought and time put into making sure they were accurate, but it isn't until later chapters that the story and the details reach a companionable balance. The story starts off slowly, and the meticulous catalog of Clay and Marianna's initial outings makes for a rough start.

As for the main characters, I found them difficult to relate to in the beginning.

Not my idea of a good story - gave up part way through as it didn't hold my interest but maybe others will enjoy it?
