I love JAL, but when it comes to the high seas, Marsha Canham is the woman for me. It was cute, but not a fave.Reread 9/16/12: Downgraded a star. Ugh - there were SO many repetitive words and phrases: "bands of muscle" when referring to the stomach, "hosannas", etc. Gack. I was really pulled out of the story this time around. Also, at this point, I hate the Everseas and Redmonds - thanks to all the endlessly twinkly referencing and series baiting. OLIVIA can go jump in that infamous well for all I care, and take the rest of them with her.
