I was a given a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Here it is…
I didn’t dislike this book, but there was something off about it for me. It’s kind of a sweet story, but there was something about it that felt like a lack of depth…or maybe naivety. The characters (like the Hollywood actor and the crooked journalist) didn’t seem realistic. And the story kind of fell into place in a way that didn’t seem realistic either.
For example, when one of the characters went to the high school and immediately recognized the two kids because they looked like their biological dad. That made me laugh. I have three teenage children and if I hadn’t met them until they were this age, I’d have no idea they were mine just by their looks. I just found that a little silly.
Anyway, the story was still interesting and enjoyable.
