I was very close to not finishing this book, but I decided to persevere and give it a chance until the end. I should have DNFed it.
Very disappointing story, plagued with ridiculous details in its plot, the development of the characters, and the ending. And it is very difficult to explain everything that is wrong with this book without revealing spoilers. So I’m just going to say that most of the conflicts in this book would have been less problematic if the main protagonists communicated more and trusted each other. I thought that was quite ridiculous: a married couple that barely communicates with the other, keeps lots of secrets, and doesn’t trust in the other, but yet they are a good couple and there are no problems and not even the remote possibility of getting a divorce? Yeah, right. I know this is fiction, but that’s quite a stretch.
And then, the secrets they were so ashamed of, I didn’t understand why they were so ashamed, since everything was quite normal.
Anyways, I couldn’t feel sympathy for any of the characters because they were annoying and borderline unbearable. And the story didn’t make me think this book had any redeeming quality. I cannot recommend it, and obviously I wouldn’t read more books in this series.
Anyhow, for all of that, I give this book… 2 TEA CUPS!
