My favorite aspect of this book is the unconventional family dynamic. It gives the story line an unusual and pleasant change of pace. This is a very sweet story of love, loyalty and understanding and I really enjoyed it.

Overall I liked the authors writing style. I did find that the story would shift abruptly from one character's perspective to anothers and sometimes it was difficult to keep up with whose line of thinking was going on in the story. Also near the end of the book I noticed there seemed to be more grammatical errors and the heroine is mistakenly referred to as Jenna several times which was throwing me off. While the book would definitely benefit from better editing it was still an enjoyable, relaxing evening read.

Fix the major grammatical errors and it could definitely rank at least 4 stars with me!

I don't know about you, but I work hard. When I choose to read a book, I want to relax with a good book, not wrestle with it. Some books have such complicated plots and numerous characters, it's seems like work to keep up with them. Once was Lost is an incredibly easy read. No hard work there, just relax and enjoy as the pages keep turning. I'd like to see more from this author.

This author really made me feel for the characters in this book. Holly is who the book mainly focuses on, but I really like how the entire book shows different aspects of the family life and focuses on other characters from time to time, and how everyone is adjusting to divorce. Holly is left trying to get her life back on track after everything seems to be falling down around her. Matt becomes Holly's new interest in the book, and from the get go, Holly isn't quite sure about it. She did resist him quite more than I thought was appropriate, but the author still made it enjoyable. I found myself getting frustrated with Holly when she didn't want to allow Matt to help the family out in any way. It was a good frustration though. It made me want to continue to read to see if she ever would let Matt into her heart.

All in all, this was a crisp read and I enjoyed it very much.

Between the grammatical errors and unbelievable dialogue, I was grateful the book was free. I`m sure the author was trying to make the heroine a sympathetic figure, but she comes across as a whiny worry-wort, manipulated by a 7 year old.

And for a romance book, the author has no imagination. The only kiss between the h/h is at the very end, and even that is chaste. Then an epilogue that wraps up 2 weddings, a custody battle, and a rehabilitated, drunk absent father in the space of three pages. I expect more depth and development from the books I read. Don`t bother with this one.

This was a pleasant little story. I really appreciate that there was no sexual twaddle clogging it up.
I did find it to be a bit pedantic though. The conversations between characters took far too long and kept reiterating the same things over and over.
The characters tended to be a bit one dimensional and the plot was pretty melodramatic at times. The 'good' characters were almost sickenly virtuous and the 'bad' ones weren't sussed out at all...they were just cardboard meanies.

All in all though, a nice effort and an okay afternoon read.

Nice little book. My only problem was with the formatting. I was not able to read it on my kindle the font was huge even after adjusting the settings to the smallest font. This is the first book in kindle fire that has done that. It used to happen with my older kindle all the time. I ended up reading it on my tablet with the kindle app.

Holly was left by her husband leaving her with their daughter Brianne, but taking their nephew
Reid, who is like a son to Holly since his parents died when he was a baby. She is helped
by her ex-father-in-law after their divorce. Certain events bring her to the presence of
the new undersheriff, Matt Saunders, and his family. As she is trying to stand on her own,
Matt and his family along with Edward are determined to help her no matter what her protests
are. Plus, her ex Paul is becoming threatening. What will happen? A enjoyable must read!

Rosemarie wrote an excellent book. She described the people like you were right there with them. She captured your attention from the beginning and kept it through out the book till the end. I didn't want to put it down. I could go on and on and possibly telling you what happens in the book, but that would not be fair to Rosemarie....get the book, grab a (few) cups of coffee or tea...find a nice quiet spot and be ready to be absorbed in a tail that will have you not wanting to put it down till the end.
