Smoke (Lydia Strong Novels)

Smoke (Lydia Strong Novels) - Lisa Miscione Ewwwwwwww. I'm too tired to go into much detail. Not the author's fault but the description on the back is misleading. It is the author's fault, however, that she names the protagonist's husband after her own. And things just go downhill from there. This is one annoying character, driving around in a Mercedes in NYC - who the hell needs a car in NYC? If you like Lifetime movies, you'll probably like this book. If you like Lifetime movies to laugh at, skip this book. It will just irritate you. It's boring and ludicrous.
