One of the best books I have read in a long time. Funny and heart warming all at the same time. First book I have read by Kate Perry can not wait to read more.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. While the heroine was somewhat annoying at times, in a way you could identify with her. The story was realistic, a woman who has sacrificed her life to look after her family...I won't say any more so I don't spoil it. But honestly grab this book while it's free and you can. It is WELL worth a read!
I agree it was annoying that she seemed such a pushover at times but there are people like that, no-one is perfect. So I enjoyed the fact that the heroine wasn't the stereotypical perfect female.
I have read other Kate Perry books and I have to say she is a very talented writer.
