This has to be one of the worst books Sabrina Jeffries has ever written. The plot is very thin, going from one 'ton' event to another with no real mystery to it. There isn't a true antagonist in the story, making it a little less than exciting when the 'dark secret' is revealed to readers very early, her husband midway and the protagonist is 'suddenly cured' at the end. I only read the entire book because Jeffries' trilogies tend to require knowledge of the previous book and I feared I would miss something in case the others were worth reading. However, I felt it difficult to follow, mainly because it was just so boring, and at the end, I felt I wanted that time and money back. Oh well. On the other hand, I have fallen asleep much sooner each night due to this choice of reading, so not a total loss.
