I have been one of Susan's fans for a while and will continue to do so. This is a good read but not one of her best. Abusive behavior in many forms appear in this book explaining much.The main charcters are likeable and you want to rout for them all the way. You want to shake some sense into the ex fiance,(who just will not listen) and at times both mothers. I also felt the book ended abruptly. An enjoyable read for a rainy afternoon.
