We discover that Sara is unable to have children.
Carol I read this book without reading the first one, and felt badly cheated by not knowing the outcome of the first one, and the back story for Lena. You are commenting using your Twitter account. Find your local bookstore at booksellers.

Her books are an entertaining way to spend a few hours – the stories themselves have a lot going for them — it’s the execution that, for me, is just meh.

His faded jeans rested a little below his thin hips, and slaighter tight white T-shirt he wore rode up a little, showing off the definition in his abs.
