Kristin Billerbeck set the standard for Chick Lit, and this book is the very definition of Chick Lit. It is an easy read with light-hearted romance and a dash of drama thrown in for good measure.
Katie is a young woman who has overcome hurt but has now left the past behind to live a decent life. However, her past comes back to mess up what she has established. Sometimes you need to learn from the past to make a better future, and Katie does just that.
Much like other books by Kristin Billerbeck (What a Girl Wants and A Girl's Best Friend), this book has a young woman trying to find her true self while staying true to her faith in a materialistic world. I think we can all relate to that so some degree.
On a side note, I felt that the relationship between Katie and Dexter was much like the relationship between Meg Ryan and her fiance in Sleepless in Seattle. It was safe and comfortable but a passionless relationship that was doomed from the start.
To comply with new regulations introduced by the Federal Trade Commission, I must post that Thomas Nelson has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book to review. I also must say that the opinions are all mine.
