What I loved about this book...
This is one of those books that I purchased on my Kindle app a long time ago, when it first came out in 2010, and forgot I had it until now. I was in the mood for a summertime read that would have a bit of romance in it but not any 'sexiness' in it (which I seem to find a lot around at the moment). I adored this book. Absolutely loved the two main characters Caleb and Kate. I loved the way they each had their own 'back story' and had their own issues that they had to overcome throughout the story. I liked how they characters progressed through the story. What I also liked about this book was the feel of character history between most of the characters. Both Kate and Caleb's grandfathers were friends/enemies and that was something that 'hung' over both families heads
What I was not fond of with this book...
Although I enjoyed this book so much, I did feel the ending left me wanting more. It was one of those endings that I felt left it to the imagination as to what happens next rather than actually spell it out and, on this occasion, I needed it spelt out to me.
