Helpful Score: 9

I received this book for free as part of a marketing campaign conducted by BzzAgent, and had never read a book by Barbara Delinsky before (I don't think I'd even heard of her). The cover for some reason reminds me of a book you'd find in the "young adult" section (not where I shop), but I'm always up for trying something new.

The plot revolves around a family and several other people in a small New England town, who (surprise!) all have secrets. That said, I didn't find the book to be overly predictable. There are family tensions, concerns about reputation, and overwhelming situations, and the characters all act in an understandable manner.

The book didn't take a lot of brainpower to read, but it also wasn't complete fluff. I'd say it's a great book for the beach or traveling, something you can breeze through but not feel like you've wasted your time.
