Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would recommend the first book in this series but would probably skip this follow up book. The story alternates between past and present day, which can work in some books, but in this case, it is the very near past vs. present, and I think it becomes somewhat confusing (particularly if you do not have the opportunity to listen to the book in a single setting). I also did not particularly like the narrator for this book (it felt more like someone was reading the book to me than "narrating" the book). In fairness, I did not have much difficulty with the same narrator in the first book. Perhaps, the story overall in the first book was so good that I did not notice a somewhat generic "reading" feeling that permeated this book. Again, I would rate Samantha Young's books amongst some of my all time favorites (I LOVED the Dublin Street books), and I will likely continue to read every book that she writes - for the angst, compelling story, sizzling romance and fantastic characterization. However, while this book has some moments of that brilliance, it did not deliver the overall experience of her other books.

Very slow. Skipping chapters. The narration was poor. At the end of each sentence her enunciation was weird.
