    I don t know what feels worse slagging this book or admitting that I read it This was a plodding mystery romance centered around an unlikeable character who no one in their right mind would relate to Gina is a former lingerie model turned PhD, single mother of twin boys, and spends 70 percent of this story whining about how beautiful she is and how annoying it can be when every man who sets eyes on her falls in love I feel like a total chump for reading this book This is the author s first I don t know what feels worse slagging this book or admitting that I read it This was a plodding my...

    There were a lot of characters introduced quickly, so it was hard to remember who was whom There were a few story lines going on at once and almost felt like this would have been better as a series.

    What a terrific surprise I d not read anything by this author before and borrowed it on a whim from the library I spent the next two days which happened to be snow days immersed in the story, feeling a low grade nervousness about being home alone and trying to read faster and faster until Gina found a return to safety I m not easily scared as a reader and frequently pick up suspense mystery novels, but there was something about her situation vulnerable without wanting to be that really What a terrific surprise I d not read anything by this author before and borrowed it on a whim from the library I spent the next two days which happened to be snow days immersed in the story, feeling a low grade nervousness about being home alone and trying to read faster and faster until Gina found a return to safety I m not easily scared as a reader and frequently pick up suspense mystery novels, but there was something a...

    Hands down worst book I ve ever read So badly written I laughed out loud What was so bad The supermodel religious studies professor main character was so beautiful that men asked her out several times a day and didn t give up even after being rejected over and over The plot was uneventful and boring and dragged on so long I forgot what the book was about Reviewers who said it was suspenseful and had twists must ve read the other books with this title this was my mistake because there wasn Hands down worst book I ve ever read So badly written I laughed out loud What was s...

    I struggled with this one The story starts so abruptly and the author doesn t give much time at the beginning for character development and so I wasn t bought in on the characters as it started out The characters do develop extensively throughout the novel but I found myself just really not liking many of the characters except Tommy and so I just struggled The story itself, while in theory is good, is really drawn out There are a lot of twists to...

    I gave up on this book around page 100 Too much rehashing of information, too many characters for the story line, too much whining

    This first novel by Lila Shaara is not so much a mystery as two relatively unrelated, psychological stories, which isn t necessarily a bad thing A one time successful lingerie model, Gina Paletta, has settled in a sleepy town just outside the Big Apple with her 7 year old twin sons Besides being a doting single mom the boys father died when they were three , she s a sociology professor at a local college But wouldn t you know it her modeling career catches up with her...

    I didn t particularly like this book The storyline was, in my opinion, mildly entertaining I m not quite sure if Shaara was trying to aim for full on fluff or pseudo crime novel Don t get me wrong, I read it the entire book however many times I had to put it down and go back to it I liked the suspense angle, but it was getting to be a bit much that Gina was gaining the amount of attention she did from everyone You ve got a fashion model turned college professor with the PhD, to boot.of I didn t particularly like this book The storyline was, in my opinion, mildly entertaining I m not quite sure if Shaara was trying to aim for full on fluff or pseudo crime novel Don t get me wrong, I read it the entire book however many times I had to put it down and go back to it I liked the suspense angle, but it was getting to be a bit much that Gina was gaining the amount of attention she did from everyone You...

    So far this book is okay I m hanging in there because I m interested enough to want to know the ending BUT..too much description, too much introspection I like mostly like the main character narrator but sometimes I just want her to get on with it I m 5 discs into the 16 disc audio book and I m seriously considering just checking out the book from the library so I can skim over much of the dialogue and get to the meat of the story.I gave up and went and got the text version of this book so I So far this book is okay I m hanging in there because I m interested enough to want to know the ending BUT..too much description, too much introspection I like mostly like the main character narrator but sometimes I just want her to get on with it I m 5 discs in...
