    DNFed almost half way through The over the top abuse the heroine suffered from her deceased husband is ridiculous and her fears, which I tried to sympathize with grated on my nerves The hero was bland and the emotional dialogue between the heroine and heroine was too prosey and sickeningly poetic for me to the point I grew annoyed.A pass.
