This was on the Lucky Day shelf - a chance to read a popular title. It was so tedious to read but I stuck it out and finished it. I have no knowledge of the author or any reviews of her writing. Maybe her use of language is very polished. But this was the opposite of a page turner. I kept hoping something would happen. Waiting for something to happen. Another problem - not enough information about what was going on with the characters. I would not recommend this.
