I really enjoyed her first book but this one..well, not so much. Perhaps it's the surfeit of all things Titanic that have been around lately or the fact that the plot moves at a snail's pace. I kept waiting for something to happen, something that would tie together all the flashbacks, some thread that would make it all coherent but I must have missed it. Instead, I had to keep putting it down as my eyes kept closing. It lacks the intrigue & surprising turns of her first book so I'm afraid it just didn't hold my interest.
