 I really liked this book! I began reading it expecting a typical angst filled romance of a woman torn between two men. I was SO pleasantly surprised to quickly read otherwise. This book has a complex plot with characters that have true depth. Nothing feels contrived or forced.

There are three main characters whose lives are mysteriously intertwined through one pregnant woman (Meadow) killed by a hit and run driver four years prior. Mason, Meadow's sister, seems to be the perfect all American man. Brie is the married woman he has serious chemistry with. James is Brie's unfaithful husband. Before the end of the book, I was actually feeling compassion for James, even as I disliked him. Invoking those feelings in a reader takes serious talent from the writer.

There are several minor characters that are vital to the development of the book. They have been just as deeply developed as the major characters and are much more than mere "extras".

The book ends with many unanswered questions, but in no way leaves the reader feeling cheated. I'm looking forward to the sequel.
