The story just fell flat for me. I finished it awhile back and felt disappointed. So, I waited to see if my impression would improve with time. The strongest annoyances were the overabundance of scenes focusing on wine, coffee, yoga, running/rowing or the heroine in a weakened state. Most actions were too predictable, and the characters were all forgettable. Sorry. So many people have given the book high ratings, so just account this to personal taste.
