This has gotten me very confused. She doesn't really clarify what has happened to Jake, Carly, and Chris. I know that it may come later in the book, but some may forget by that time. I will keep reading and see what happens. Maybe it will explain itself.
I thought Jake, Carley and Chris had left on vacation and she was housesitting for 6 weeks. I thought what we didn't know was how she hurt her hand and what she is having nightmares about. Now I'm confused.
I'm also comfused by all the quotation marks. I know she's not saying those things, but they look like dialog. I think some of those lines are in italics in the manuscript, and they are her thoughts.
I was a bit confused to, so I went to Jill's website.
The exerpt there explains what happened to her hand - makes a bit more sense.
I am looking forward to reading more, but can't afford to buy anymore hard covers -
To answer the other question, What happened to her friends I believe is explained her previous book Lovers Lane. So if you want to know more have to read that book. That may help to alleviate the confusion.
So far I like this one. It leaves out just enough information for me to want to continue reading, yet gives you enough that you aren't totally scratching your head wondering what is happening. I like the mixture of mystery and the impending romance.
I loved Suzanne's comparison of reading with dating! I never thought of it like that before. It makes it easier for me to quit reading this one. I'm simply calling a relationship off after a few dates!
