I enjoyed this book a great deal. I found myself completely enveloped in the story and what was happening with Hallie and her family. I didn't always view Hallie as strong enough when she needed to be, therefore, I became a bit annoyed with her. Anita Hughes has become one of my favorites now that I have read all 3 of her books. I would highly recommend this book as well as Monarch Beach and Market Street
