OK - so I'm somewhere between a 2 and 3 star on this so I'll go with 2.5 stars.
The beginning of the book was kind of boring and boy did I learn a lot about how to train a dog. I also really didn't warm up to Simon. He just seemed way too hard for me. There just was something about him that I didn't warm to. He was a little too grumpy for me or something. Fiona was ok but I didn't really love her either. It's hard to explain but this couple just didn't do it for me. Yes, I at sometimes smiled over them and there were a few sweet parts but it just wasn't enough for me.
The book got a bit better as it neared the end and the excitement picked up a bit.
I think I kept going with this book in the beginning because I like Nora Roberts and normally enjoy her books. It took a bit to get through the first half of the book but once I did that I was able to enjoy the rest of it.
Even though I wasn't a big fan of this couple they did have some good moments.
