This book is really boring. Most of the book is about the Rowing Club. The main characters, Michelle and Theo, are barely in the first third of the book. The story is so convoluted the reader just wants it to end. I kept reading the book because Nick and Laurant are in other books in this series. Should have skipped this one.

LOVED this book! I thought it was boring in the beginning so started another book. It was worse, so went back to Mercy. So glad I gave it a chance. It was funny, romantic and full of mystery. One of her best. Easily 5 stars!!!
