Would have given it another star but for some seriously morally-questionable behavior that goes unexamined -- sadly a trade mark of this author. So what is essentially rape is not a big deal if the victim is a male? How empowering -- not!
And what's up with romance novels where modern, self-supporting women are "forced" (and seem to be unable to resist) into marriage by their indignant relatives when they get knocked up? Seriously, do fathers still do that?
My favorite part was the descriptions of the illustration Molly does for her picture book; I wish I could have read that book instead!
