This was a quick, light read. Since it was so short, Kleypas didn't go in depth about Maggie's past w her husband nor thoroughly explain about what Mark had to go through with his alcoholic parents. I did enjoy all the beautiful details about the pacific northwest. I loved the quick mentions of Mill Creek and Lynnwood which are cities that I both lived in. Also, the ferry rides had me reminisce about the times of my life in Washington state.
