I'm Thalia! I run a book blog called Pictures in the Words and I hope to be an editor for YA fiction. I'm a GoodReads refugee!
Ah, the standard Nicholas Sparks novel.
Army guy: check
Naturally beautiful woman who knows when guys (even married ones!) turn to stare at her: check
Single parent with a son: check
The son is a sweetheart and "not like other kids": check
Crazy ex-somebody or other: check
Woman raised by grandmother because her parents died in a car accident: check
Character followed secret clues to find other character and won't tell them about it: check
NORTH CAROLINA: check
"he wasn't like other guys she'd dated": check
Homemade dinner first date: check
Someone is divorced: check
"LOL friend-character, there aren't many single guys my age, that's why I don't date": check
The predictability, mmm. Now all we need is sex-after-lansagna and we're pretty much set.
(Despite all that, I am enjoying this one more than other Sparks novels, but maybe that's just because Zac Efron.)
