You start this book by hearing a little about how Mel is influenced by Sam and some of the mistakes she has made in her life. You just start to get a feel for where the book is going with a relationship that has sparked up between Melanie and April (Sam's current girlfriend who she is treating like dirt) and you almost get a sense of disapproval and empathy for the type of life Sam must have led. Then the story takes a huge turn and you are all of a sudden thrown knee deep into Sam's whirlwind of a life.
While Sam is trying to come to terms with the death of her estranged mother she decides it is time to get some help getting her life back on track. Meet Tina, the therapist. Their professional life flourishes but Sam feels herself wanting more from the relationship. Stepping out of the strict code of ethics that psychologists are meant to stick to, Tina decides to take the relationship to the next level. All the while Sam doesn't realise that this is just another disaster waiting to happen.....or is it?
Tina doesnt know how to break it off with her hubby and does she even really want to, but whilst Sam is madly in love with Tina, she knows that their relationship can not continue the way is has been. Sam makes the final realisation that she has to grow up and move on with her life.
Will Sam ever find true love? Or is she destined to live out her life immersing herself in her work? And how does her rekindling her friendship with Melanie affect how she views her life?
I thought that the book got off to a shaky start but once you could actually work out where you were in the story you were, you were able to sit back and enjoy the story for what it was. Dawn Carter has a lot of potential as an up and coming author and while there are some editing issues in the book, if you can look past these then it is a very enjoyable book.
The only downside that I found that annoyed me a little was Sams long time friend from her childhood has a very childish feel to the way she talks, it almost made me think I was reading a book out of the 80's. Other than that, 4 stars Dawn and keep up the good work. I would definitely reed more of your books.
