Read full description of the books:
Sheer, unadulterated BOREDOM (and I can't stress that enough!)—that’s what comes to mind after having read this beyond tedious story. It is endless. The author is in desperate need of a competent editor because this book could have been shortened in so many areas and easily whittled down to 300 pages tops.
Things happen but don’t happen and take forever to happen and when you think something good is going to happen you’re left saying: “That’s it???!” It is filled with pages and pages of annoying narration that rarely add to the story and act as filler. There are secondary stories that serve no purpose at all except to annoy the reader.
The number of times the heroine forgave the hero is enough to send even a very forgiving person over the edge. The hero, Devon, was horrible in so many ways and still Lily loved him even if at one point you think she’s gotten herself a clue and stays mad at him for a while only to forgive the sob yet again. I didn’t think he was a forgivable or a redeemable hero. Then there’s this whole forest scene with some weirdo witch-like woman and you’re thinking “What the--??? Where did she come from and why is she here????” And there's also the Cornish splattered around like word vomit--because that's even remotely understandable!?! Holy irritating!
The ending is wrapped up nice and pretty all of a sudden which was about the only good thing in this book what with all the wavering and lack of direction. It’s not a tight story. It’s as if it was a first draft that went to print.
It's not the easiest book to come across as it's out of print--and I can soooo understand why now....

Read information about the authorPatricia Gaffney was born in Tampa, Florida, and grew up in Bethesda, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C. She earned a bachelor’s degree in English and philosophy from Marymount College in Tarrytown, New York, and also studied literature at Royal Holloway College of the University of London, at George Washington University, and at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
After college, Gaffney taught 12th grade English for a year before becoming a freelance court reporter, a job she pursued in North Carolina, Pittsburgh, and Washington, D.C., for the next fifteen years.
Her first book, a historical romance, was published by Dorchester in 1989. Between then and 1997, she wrote 11 more romance novels (Dorchester; Penguin USA), for which she was nominated for or won many awards. Many of these previously out of print classics are available again today as digitally reissued classics, including the author's most recently re-released and much beloved novels in The Wyckerley Trilogy.
In 1999, she went in a new direction with her hardcover fiction debut, The Saving Graces (HarperCollins). A contemporary story about four women friends, the novel explored issues of love, friendship, trust, and commitment among women. The Saving Graces enjoyed bestseller status on the New York Times, Publishers Weekly, USA Today, and other lists.
Circle of Three (2000), Flight Lessons (2002), and The Goodbye Summer (2004) followed, all national bestsellers. Gaffney’s most recent novel was Mad Dash (2007), a humorous but insightful look at a 20-year marriage, told from the viewpoints of both longsuffering spouses.
More recently, Pat's been indulging her purely creative side in a brand new format for her -- novellas. With friends including J. D. Robb, she has contributed stories to three anthologies, all New York Times bestsellers. In "The Dog Days of Laurie Summer" (The Lost, 2009), a woman in a troubled marriage "dies" and comes back as the family dog. "The Dancing Ghost" (The Other Side, 2010) brings together a pretty spinster and a shady ghost buster in 1895 New England. And in "Dear One" (The Unquiet, 2011), a fake phone psychic (or IS she?) meets her match in a stuffy Capitol Hill lobbyist -- who couldn't possibly be that sexy-voiced cowboy from Medicine Bend who keeps calling the psychic line.
Patricia Gaffney lives in southern Pennsylvania with her husband.
