For me, the big problem is the main character, Melody Prescott Thomas. She is not just unsympathetic and hard to like, she's (quite frankly) a horrible person. Any mother who would move in on her daughter's girlfriend (an equally yucky character) is not someone you can root for...if this were a physical book and not a Kindle I would have thrown it across the room in exasperation.
Melody is smug and selfishly justifies her way out of any situation she thinks might hurt another person (though she rarely hesitates for more than a second as to whether she is in the wrong or not.) Joy (her daughter's girlfriend) is all too ready to jump into bed with her at a second's notice. Only poor Patty (Melody's daughter) seems to have any scruples and she's too quiet and meek to really care about at all. Betty, Melody's secretary, is a dear, way too good to be having feelings for someone like Melody (who goes on to do unspeakable things best left unsaid here.)
Infidelity has always been a hot button issue for me so perhaps that's where all of my dislike (and anger) for this book is coming from, no matter how things (and, oh boy, are there lots of things!) may turn out in the end.
