This is the first book I've read by this author. I liked it! I liked the way the author builds each of the three characters. I didn't read the book description carefully, so I was pleasantly surprised by the twist in the middle of the story. I found myself finishing the book as quickly as I could, because I really wanted to know how each woman ended her own story. I think I'll try another one of her books.
