almost gave up on this book. I was about 1/4 through and was not really engaging in the story. In the author's defense, I think it was mostly my fault. I just think I wasn't in the mood to read (I'd read about a dozen books back to back. I set the book down and did something else for a while.
When I went back to it, I was thinking why was I going to put this down? I started reading and was instantly mesmerized and finished the rest of the book.
This was an awesome read about several women who were all somehow connected. Of course, you don't see it at first, but when you do, it's amazing. I loved how the author took these women showed their best and their worst, their hardships, their secrets and their lives. And, then to take all of that and put them together? This was a phenomenal weave of "stories" that centered all on the El Capitan Casino.
An amazing story that I am so glad I did not put down.
Thanks Touchstone and Net Galley for approving and allowing me to read and review this book.
