I truly enjoyed this book, these characters were just that, great characters. There were moments in the story that I wanted to help them along, and other moments I just wanted to throw my hands up in the air and let it all be upon themselves. This is what makes a great story for me. Writing that makes me feel part of the story, not like I am looking in on a scene, but that I am part of that scene. Gina Wellborn did exactlly that with this book. It is one of my favorite QOL books. 4.5 stars from this reviewer.
