  1. Thanks for the review. Sounds like a good read even though the ending was disappointing. I will place this on my To Read list at the library.

  2. Sorry to hear that the ending wasn’t the best. I’ve yet to read any of her books but I mean to soon. I’ve had a couple sitting on the shelves for too long now.
