I just finished this book...it was a good lite read. I am kind of a seasonal reader and the book starts out on New Year's Eve so I was just drawn to it the week before New Year's. It was on sale and I paid $2.99 on my nook for it. It is now $9.99, a little steep in my opinion. It isn't going to win any literary awards but it was a good read on a cold New England night. On a scale from 1-10 I give it a 6.
