    This was one of those books that pulls you in before you even realize it's happened. I started it, thought I liked it fine but didn't love it, kept reading it, and then put it down for a few hours - and my thoughts kept wandering back to it. Turns out I liked it a lot more than I first...

    My Review: This is another one of those books that I just fell in love with. It did have a few issues where I was slightly board in the middle parts. But all in all it was a great movie that I think would work well for the Hallmark Channel. The only other issue I had with this one was ...
