I picked this book up on sale not knowing what to expect. I am not a reader of light, romantic fiction as a general rule, but the description attracted me due to its indication that the story revolves around life abroad and had some level of mystery. (I think they used the descriptors "intrigue" and "web".) If you are expecting mystery don't buy it. There is a twist at the end, but not enough to classify it as mysterious. If you are a lover of contemporary fiction with some humor and some romance then you may find it both interesting and entertaining. This is a quick and easy read which entertained me and never ventured into a place where I was either confused or thinking. The problem is that I like books which force me to be uncomfortable, to think hard and to feel confused. I like books which are deep and intricate rather than entertaining. I like characters who are deeply flawed, in pain, angry, obstinate, stubborn, funny, kind, likable and unlikable.
Cassandra Campbell's narration is beautiful, sweet and subtle. She was the reason for the sale and so now I am looking forward to two other books I bought which she read. I am grateful for that.
It's painfully obvious every time the narrator inhales to breathe and it's driving me batty. It's so distracting I can't proceed another minute. It might be a good book, I'll never know.
