I should have counted the number of times I rolled my eyes.
Here's the story of a lady, who has just dropped her child off at the airport so that he can go to Hawaii with some friends over Christmas. (Eyeroll (ER) 1). Even though there is a major snow storm she dilly dally's by going to the mall, goes to a movie, eats dinner in a restaurant with extra stops on the way, (ER 2). With all of that she has her dog in the car? (ER 3&4). I travel often, my dogs never go to the airport, they aren't allowed in most restaurants and they definitely are not welcome in a movie theatre.
So if we believe all of that, what harm is there in believing that, in the middle of a blinding snow storm that a driver would roll down a window so the dog could put his nose out. (ER 5). Worse the dog gets overexcited and makes the woman drive into a ditch. Instead of taking control of the animal she allows him out of the car without a leash! (ER 6 & 7 plus hands thrown up in the air). So off the dog runs, then the lady runs after the dog and they find a girl who has run away from her dad in the middle of a snowstorm, because he wouldn't let her go to a friend's house over Christmas. (Eyerolls not doing it anymore, gag reflex working though)
From that point on it just gets worse. The dialogue is "oh I am so sorry, it was all my fault", such saccharine sweetness is beyond what my stomach can handle. Throw in the runaway's father and you have a fast eye to eye connection romance with hints of promises of forever. Within hours of meeting each other.
So while the author can write a coherent if utterly implausible Pollyanna story. Please do not read this unless you have a dentist's appointment coming up. Because all of the coincidental sweetness might rot your teeth.
