    I have read all seven of Ms Flinn's books and I think that this is her best product yet I really enjoyed how she brought Elle's character to life by merging her stormy bad ass past with her determination to change her image and her drive to mend relationships with those she had harmed as well as her son Although this book is based on a character from Ms Flinn's first book The One this is a stand alone novel I have enjoyed all of Ms Flinn's novels because I am a transplant to North Carolina and have become somewhat familiar with the venues of Boone and Valle Crucis Because of the venues of Wilmington and the Outer Banks I look forward to visiting those areas

    Great book Completely realistic characters and thrilling storyline I kept wanting to smack Elle the narrator upside the head haha I was so interested to see who she would end up with and what would happen when her secret got out And the big twist near the end was heart wrenching I enjoyed reading this book while sitting on the beach and then had a hard time putting it down
