Then Came You by Jenneifer Weiner

From Goodreads: The lives of four very different women intertwine in unexpected ways. Each woman has a problem: Princeton senior Jules Wildgren needs money to help her dad cure his addiction; Pennsylvania housewife Annie Barrow is gasping to stay financially afloat; India Bishop yearns to have a child, an urge that her stepdaughter Bettina can only regard with deeply skepticism until she finds herself in a most unexpected situation. Interlocking dramas designed to ensnare.

This one was just okay for me. The plot was interesting, kind of intricate machinations in order to bring all these storylines together the way she did. But I kept waiting for one of the characters to surprise me, to reveal somethig of themselves other than what Weiner lies out quite plainly and that never happened. So I felt like she was talking down to me as if I couldn't coax anything out on my own but had to have everything diagrammed. It was still entertaining, it would make a great vacation read when you just want to relax and not think!

I am trying to reach 100 books this year - I've never done it before although I have come very close, click on the logo to see how I am doing for this year!
