The One That Got Away: A Novel

The One That Got Away: A Novel - Bethany Chase I got a copy of this one from the First to Read program, and it was a nice break from the heavier fare I've been going through.

Chase's book is a fun, entertaining read. I enjoyed the voice of the novel, first-person in Sarina's voice. She's an architect with relationship issues of various kinds. Some of the characters are a bit, well, typical, but not enough to get in the way of enjoying the story. My only complaint about Sarina's character is that she does some hard-to-believe things to prolong the drama of the romance, that that's not unheard of. Otherwise I liked her and had fun in her story.
