When You Were Mine
My Review: This book was good, but I like some other Noble's other books better. I think I feel this way since I didn't connect to the main character, Susannah. I felt she was too old to be so unhappy and in a dead end relationship (not married, but committed). I don't care for books where the main character engages in an affair. I like that she and Rob become involved again, but she should have left Doug and Rob should have separated from his wife first....just my opinion. I know real life isn't that black and white. Also, why she wasn't working was beyond me. She had been a lawyer and for the life of me, I can't figure out why she gave up her career. I was also upset at her and how (I feel) she let her best friend down during a horrible time in her life. I just found Susannah to be immature and not very "smart."
However, given all my above comments, I did enjoy the book, it just wasn't a favorite of mine. I would have to rate this book as Okay.
Thanks to Crazy Book Tours for letting be part of the tour!
