OOPS! I meant to give this book 2 1/2 stars and after it posted, I realized I accidentally only gave it 1 1/2 stars! Sorry about that. You know, the wonderful thing about comments is when somebody rates a book with lots of stars and somebody else doesn't give it very many! You just gotta read the comments and decide for yourself....right? I thought about giving this book 3 stars, but in the end, I gave it 2 1/2. For me what saved this book was the last 1/3, or maybe the last 1/4. I was really bored during the first 2/3 or 3/4 of this book. Almost didn't finish it. I have to be honest....I really dislike books that jump around in time. And this one jumped around with 3 different time/year segments. I was doing pretty well until I went on to read one segment and discovered IT had jumped forward by 5 years itself! The book was kind of interesting, with references to the Bahamas being "governed" by their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Except, everyone knew that she was NOT a Royal Highness...her official title was Her Grace the Duchess of Windsor. BUT if you wanted to stay in "good" with them, you called her Your Royal Highness and/or never corrected it when someone else called her that. Anyway, I'm not going to reveal the ending, but as I said above, the last part of the book was the best for me. Almost made me give it 3 stars....but nope. I decided on 2 1/2 instead. Read it for yourself and you decide.
