As usual Maggie has written a heartfelt and wonderful story. Each character in the book is unique and with each one there is something that I could find myself relating to. There were times when I laughed out loud and there were a few times where I shed a few tears. I don't usually read many books outside of paranormal type romance so this was a refreshing change and I will be looking forward to the other books in this series.
