My thoughts:

The book was ok, but the characters were not so great. For me the story was slow in the beginning. It isn’t till about the end of the book it starts taking off. The heroine, Marguerite is a bit reckless and comes across as a woman with no brains. She doesn’t have a problem lying or flirting with other men after she gets engaged. The plot was too predictable and the characters were shallow. The book did not hold my attention therefore, I did not finish the book.
