I thought this was a great book! Never read this author before and picked this book up on a whim; glad I did. Morris has a very reader-friendly writing style and great character development. Lots of tragic elements to this story, but really worthwhile. Looking forward to reading her other books.

I don't think I have enough room to really give this review justice. I liked this book a lot. It is very reminiscent of a modern version of "House of Mirth". Fiona is a very real and "beautiful wreck" whose mother deserted her when she was quite young. The story starts out seeming like your typical "local girl finds romance that was right under her nose all along", but turns into a suspenseful "whodunnit".

Very good. I read it in a few hours. Poor girl in the story is really messed up, but she is trying to fix her life. It is a complex story, lots of twists and turns.

This was a really great book about a 30 year old woman who suffers some ill perceptions of the world around her, which in turn costs her some difficult experiences with men (mostly) you end up really "feeling" for Fiona and the bad turns her life has taken. Her mother left when she was little and her father (if it really is Patrick) starts out not wanting to know her. She comes off as a slut, but when you begin to understand her, you start to see that she doesnt mean to be that way at all.

This book was a fabulous story...kept me interested until the end! Many people will not be able to relate to Fiona's self destructive ways, but the story unfolds so well, that you get to know her and what makes her the way she is. The reader sympathizes with this troubled character and I found myself rooting for her at the end.

I really like this book. Fiona, the main character sometimes seems to be so self-destructive and she doesn't even realize it most of the time. She is an ordinary gal, but as the story goes along, you come to realize the why's and wherefore's of her personality. The book keeps your interst and never does it get dull.....a WOW ending for sure.
