I gave up on this one about 1/3 of the way through. I just didn't care about the characters. They seemed shallow and predictable, though I suppose they might have had some surprises up their sleeves. Too bad I wasn't interested enough to find out. I liked the descriptions of scents and the couple's introduction to the Northwest, but that was about it. That said, I might pick up another book by this author down the road. This one is well written, just not interesting to me.
