Accidentally picked up a second book by this author, having disliked A Summer in the Country. Enjoyed this one a lot more.

I'm 10 chapters in and so far there are too many similar characters who all seem to constantly flipflop from feeling wonderful about their idyllic surroundings to feeling utter terror about their relationships. My first by this author & I just wanted a nice summer chickfic read ... hoping it gets better.
Aaaand it didn't very much. At least the ending was happy-ish, though considerably contrived for some of the characters. Think this'll be a one-off.

This book has been on my shelf since 2007, which means it has moved three times with me (apartment in Dallas to house in Dallas to rental in New Jersey to current home). What a waste of space.

It took me a week to get through 382 pages. On paper, it should be a book that I'd really enjoy - Ms. Willett is obviously channeling Maeve Binchy and Rosamund Pilcher, but her style and plotting lack the grace and and natural flow of those two. There are abrupt changes in perspective and timeline that jarred me out of the story too often, and the characters and plot were just kind of boring after a while. I probably would have been better served to just DNF it, but here we are.

2.25 stars
(My rating scale translation: between Why DIdn't I DNF it? and Didn't Work For Me)
