loved this book I was fortunate enough to win a galley copy from Goodreads and once I started reading, I couldn t put it down.This is a slice of life story about Dana, an artist and crossword

started reading, I couldn t put it down.This is a slice of life story about Dana, an artist and crossword enthusiast, who finds herself torn between three possible relationships There s the older man she once had an affair with, the redneck sweetheart who seems to have some secrets, and the young, intelligent crossword writer whose age makes her nervous Each of the characters in this story are very real and all are likable There isn t a villain or an obvious bad choice Everyone makes realistic choices and acts like normal adults would Nobody is written as a caricature or stereotype and that is extremely refreshing All the men are right for her in one way or another and they all love her.Dana was a well rounded, interesting lead and her relationships with her boss and best friend were endearing While she was certainly flawed, it was easy to see how she made the choices she did Dana s love of crossword puzzles was used as a neat theme, but it didn t overtake the story or become like a gimmick There is sex in the story, but it isn t graphic The author keeps you guessing the whole way through and I was thoroughly satisfied with ending I liked the short sections in this book and the writing just flowed I measure a really good book on its ability to make time disappear and this one certainly qualifies I can t wait to readfrom this author I am definitely a fan Tough book to rate it was fairly well written and clever in parts, but I couldn t get past the heroine s behavior You could say it is the story of a woman facing a tough choice, or you could say it is the story of a selfish bitch cheating on her quite lovely boyfriend Unfortunately, the author forgot to give the boyfriend much of a personality besides a Southern accent so it s hard to feel too outraged when the heroine keeps finding herself unable to resist a scruffy young crossword puzzle a Tough book to rate it was fairly well written and clever in parts, but I couldn t get past the heroine s behavior You

see that the heroine is a decent friend she would seem completely unredeemable There s no apparent reason that the heroine makes the final choice that she does, so again it s hard to feel any satisfaction at the book s conclusion
