Alexa fell for Jamie at college and when he has to return home to Ireland she marries Mike. I loved the story and the way it was written, but not so keen on being told so many times that Jamie has green eyes! What Alexa saw in Mike I don't know as he came across as having reptilian qualities - very unappealing. Alexa put up with an awful lot to try and keep her marriage going, so much so that she was a doormat for much of the time, but you couldn't help rooting for her! I enjoyed this book very much and look forward to reading more from this author.
