on March 09, 2013 :
Not a bad read but a trifle unsophisticated. The heroine is portrayed as both too consciously naive and too cynically world-weary in some ways. The relationship between herself and her ex-husband is too idealistic, and would have been more effective if the heroine had severe but private doubts about his sincerity before the critical event.
Much is revealed through narrative rather than action and dialog during the opening of the story and setting the background rather than getting immediately to the good stuff, and she sure likes to shock with ugly language.
A good enough way to kill a weekend, though, and I think the writer has some promise.
