From the back cover: Nadine Morgan thinks she has the life she's always wanted. After fleeing her childhood home on Cape Cod, she chases down the world's most dangerous stories as a foreign correspondent, leaving each place before her ties grow too deep. But in Cape Town, South Africa, Nadine discovers a story-and a man-she can't forget.
A decade later, Nadine returns to South Africa to cover a murder trial. When she revisits the city where she left her heart, her story begins to converge with that of a young boy who dreams of stardom. When Nadine glimpses the possibility of a new kind of life, she is forced to determine who she really is, and who she wants to become.
To start my review off (on the wrong foot), I disliked this book. I suppose when you don't like the main character of a story, it kind of affects the whole book/story/other characters. It irritated me the way that Nadine would run from anyone who wanted to get close to her.
The story has a twist, which I will not disclose, I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't read this book yet. It was unanticipated, but it really didn't help the story redeem itself in any way with me.
I enjoyed Sleep Towards Heaven and How To Become Lost, and I was excited when this book was released. I can only hope that her next book is much better than this one was.
