When the son of the infamous Roses marries the daughter of a bitter divorced woman there is bound to be trouble. The old quote "Children learn what they live" shows its truth here. There comes a time when there is trouble in their marriage.
The characters are wonderful. Josh Rose is incredibly likeable despite his lapse in judgement. Victoria Rose is a woman who sees life in black and white, there are no grey areas for her. She seems so rigid you expect her to snap. I wanted to dislike her but I couldn't. I found myself feeling pity for her. Aunt Evie is lovable. Everyone should have Aunt Evie in their lives. Victoria's mother is a bitter old shrew. She is very easy to hate. I wanted to shake got her.
The story itself is captivating. I was pulled in immediately and the book wouldn't let me go. I kept saying to myself "Just one more chapter and I'll go to bed.". It was suddenly 4:00 a.m. and there were no more chapters.
I loved it!
