Sadly as is typical of many of DS novels of late, this is a story line that she has done a few times before and the earlier ones were done much better (wife leaves cheating husband and starts her own catering/event planning/wedding business...been there done that...yawn!). It just seems like DS has gotten lazy. I feel like she has a set of dice with choices of plot, characters, places, and problems. She just rolls the dice and goes and whatever comes up she writes about it. Her earlier novels had more interesting and intricate stories, the characters were better developed and the issues were written about better. Now her stories are generic and under developed, the characters are very one dimensional and she pads her stories by repeating the character's glowing or bad character traits ad nauseam. The problem is we never get a real feel for who the characters are.
