I read the first 135 pages and figured out how it was going to end. Flipped through to the last 75 pages, read the ending, and I was correct. This was a ho hum book. Personally I would not recommend. Too wordy and such an obvious plot. I've read that this is supposed to be a page turner. The only way I would say this was a page turner is because the author is so wordy I turned the pages after skimming them just to get through a boring book.
