|Review:||Sidney Sheldon is a great writer...this just isn't a great book. Did you read the synopsis (back cover blurb) from above? Ok, you've just learned the entire story. Seriously! The difference between reading the blurb and reading the book is simply a few hours of your life. So why did it take me so long to get through this? Ack, I've been busier than heck this week, and unlike books that captivate me, I was able to put this one down for long stretches of time and indeed forget to pick it back up.|
