This book was good. I listened to it on audio. It started out strong, but kinda meandered around the plot for a while in the middle, then ended strongly. The hero and heroine were childhood friends, and there were helpful letters beginning each chapter that sort of told the story of their young friendship, but that wasn't enough. I still never quite felt the full connection between the children and the adults. It kept me interested, though, and I will read the second book.
