I couldn't finish this book. I tried, but, really, life's too short to waste it on books that don't keep you interested. In the half of the book that I read, I got the feeling of nothing more than "man, this is meandering." She'd start a chapter talking about one thing, and two pages later be on a completely different topic, and you have no idea how or why she made the transition. As a friend emailed me while she was reading, "Wow, does she ever need an editor!" Yes, it had some funny things about living in Buffalo, but it also fed into the stereotypes. Although maybe they weren't stereotypes in the 70s. Buffalo doesn't spend its entire winter buried in snow. Yes, winters are long, but we're not walking uphill in thigh-high snow to and from school every day. I understand the use of hyperbole. There was too much of it in this book. Also, much of the book (that I read) discussed things that were of national import (Vietnam War, energy crisis, etc.) and not particular to Buffalo. I didn't feel that needed to be in the book. There are others that cover those topics much better. So, read this book if you want to have a giggle over some Buffalo-isms, but not if you enjoy a cogent narrative.

I've recieved this as goodreads giveaway. Cyn´s husband died 2 years ago and left her with her son alone. Her mother came to live with Cyn and her son after her husband died. Worth Lansing, the best friend and business partner of Cyn´s husband, is the only person Cyn knew she could always count. One day Worth offers her an extra ticket to Acapulco. At first she is not enthusiastic about this idea. But finally she decided to accept his offer. But suddenly in the romantic hotel in tropical stars, everything is different. Her feelings for Worth are changing... This is one of Brown's earlier books. Love her books. :)
