I found this book quite entertaining, with twists galore near the end. The language, though, struck me as just a bit on the juvenile side, and some of the writing construction being similar. What I felt detracted most was the narrator. She had a very choppy, halting reading style that I found it to be distracting. Had she just used that affectation for Shelly, who was slightly brain damaged and actually might sound that way, I could have understood. However, that was her style throughout and for every character, which I felt took away from the narrative.

Really enjoyed this book. I've listened to a few of Diane Chamberlain's books now and they never disappoint. Didn't see the twist at the end happening!
When I began reading this book what appeared to be a slow read turned out to be a beautiful story with twists and turns that flow very well. It is essentially about a young girl who found a baby on the beach and this child is then adopted into the family, then as she grows up and both adopted parents have passed she decides to seek out an old family friend who is the star of a reality show where he researches real life stories. Shelley wants to know her real parents, this stirs up lots of deep set emotions and the truth starts to unravel layer by layer and before you know it you are hooked.
Not the best Diane chamberlain and I have read most . Pretty slow but could get through it - just .
I enjoyed it but I think it wasn't as good as some others I have read from her
