    21. While waiting patiently for my next hopefully exciting book to come in the mail I grabbed what I thought would be a fun read for the Christmas season – even though it’s October. It was an easy fast read and all I can say is that is was a 1-day ho-hummer. Good thing I didn’t build up any excitement waiting for all the holiday decorations to add to the reading atmosphere. It wouldn’t have helped.In a nutshell - dislikes: confusion on why the mom lied; no efforts/clues to find out what actu [...]

When he saw Amy again he realized that he still had feelings for her. Amy had loved Wade from the time she was a teenager. She wasn't sure if he returned her feelings.
