Quinn (born Prudence Quinn O’Malley) is a young lawyer living in NYC. At the beginning of the novel, she goes on a magical vacation to Paris, where he proposes. Though she accepts, she almost immediately starts having doubts.
This isn’t your typical chick-lit book. Sure it has some of the makings, but there were also some deeper issues going on. Quinn is living in Post-9/11 New York. Her father is one of the casualties of that tragic day, and this comes into play a lot in the book. She seems to have everything under control, a job as an associate in a top law firm, a loving and devoted fiancé, and good friends, but suddenly she doubts everything in her life.
It is always a great feeling to become connected with the characters in the book you are reading. The storyline seemed so real, like it could have been a true story. The characters all seemed like people I knew, or friends I have had. When Quinn was struggling with decisions, I wanted to be there for her and help her through. While I didn’t always agree with the things she was doing, I could understand where she was coming from.
