Edie Ramer portrays a powerful subject matter and not only makes it entertaining she makes it riveting. She presents a beautifully heartbreaking yet heartwarming, suspenseful love story. Meg Quinn is a great leading lady, she is tough and yet she is so caring to those she loves. I love her bluntness. Witnessing her interacting with her best friend were some of the most rewarding scenes of friendship I've every read. Meg's animosity towards Easy MacLean is totally understandable when they first met but as we both got to know him it was easy to see that her first impressions were not totally accurate. The mystery itself was interesting but not extremely difficult to solve, while still keeping the reader engaged in the action. Watching Easy come to terms with his sister's illness and his friend's problems while handling his feelings for Meg is a delight. Usually I am not a fan of heartache with my love stories as I prefer to keep things on the lighter side but if this story is any indication of how well the two emotions interact I just may have to rethink my stand. If you are looking for a beautiful story look no farther!
Former marine Easy MacLean doesn't like complications but when his sister is about to lose her battle with cancer he can't deny things any longer.
