Okay...I really liked this book...until the end. It felt like the author got tired of writing, so finished all the loose ends as quickly as possible.

A sweet, light read. A bit cheesy and far-fetched at times.

It's a cute, fun book great for vacations and waiting rooms. The cynical "misfortunes" were amusing.

The characters do not have lots of depth beyond their purpose to drive the story.

No swearing or sexual content is in this book.

I really liked this book. I agree that it did have a rather quick ending. I would have liked to see the ending drawn out a little bit. All in all it was a good story.

Like the other comments said, this is a quick, easy read without much depth. But overall, it's entertaining and very funny.
