I often pick up books because I read an excerpt from them in a Buzz Books sampler. This is one of those. I never would have picked this book up if it weren’t for that little glimpse into its contents.
I mostly enjoyed this book, that’s why it got a positive rating. I wanted to know how things were going to work out the entire way through and I was interested in these people’s lives. The ending was not my favorite, though I think its common enough in this genre. I think that’s why I don’t read this genre very often is that I don’t enjoy an open ending. I prefer the neatly wrapped up happily ever after ending that I get in romances.
That being said, I really enjoyed the idea of everyone in the family having secrets and how they all got revealed in the end. All of the secrets were difficult in their own way and each person struggled with what they should do. And I loved that every secret was entwined with Jesse in one way or another.
I received an advance reader copy of this book that I have chosen to review.
