Quick read about a divorcee trying to get back on track. I thought Helen was irritating at first, but I warmed up to her by the end and found myself rooting for her happiness. I grew to appreciate her spunky spirit, even when the storyline fell back on predictable clichés.
I did not love the thinly veiled guy-saves-girl plot line, considering Helen’s goal was to find her independence as a woman.
That said, it was all-in-all an entertaining summer read and I was racing to finish the last few pages.
