couldn t help but think that the way in which the character Miranda was wrapped up was a bit too neat I think it would have been a stronger story if Miranda found herself pregnant and without her business, or alternatively not pregnant and implementing her strategy to keep her business To have both seemed a bit too neat.Also, the constant switching of perspectives employed towards the end was just a bit much Just as you got into the swing of one voice, you were swapping towards another This sudden increase in pace detracted from the good pacing of the story up till then.So up to the last few chapters I would say it was a really good book, not flawless After reading them I would say it was only good flag 1 likeLike see review Jan 07, 2019 Eileen M Wallis rated it it was amazing Because
