The ending of this book stunned me. In retrospect, I'm not sure why I was so surprised. There are plenty of hints along the way. I enjoy Horvath's writing style, and how she explores trust in relationships, how the decisions/choices people make affect those around them, even for years to come.

Well, Teresa's comment and the laughs that I had from reading the first page has intrigued me -- I've put the book on hold!

While I liked the book, it did not wow me. The cast of characters was off the wall and there were some funny parts.
