I'm not supposed to give away the ending, but since some reviewers have criticized it, I will add this. In my opinion the ending makes sense. Perhaps it could have been expanded, but it is in character, when you understand what alcohol does to certain people who fall victim to its more dire effects.
I was going along fine until about a third of the way through when a model Roxanne is talking to dumps a page-long confession about her abortion out of nowhere. Talk about left field! The novel had been pretty light and fluffy up until that point. From there it was just downhill and I was tempted to give up about two-thirds through, but pushed on. I shouldn't have.
I'm not sure why Roxanne's character went from one extreme to the other and no explanation (via character development) was given. I wanted to like it, but I didn't..
