The Last Woman Standing by Tia McCollors

I was given The Last Woman Standing to read for a blog tour that happened a while back. I didn't get the book until the actual week of the tour so I got caught up and couldn't read it until this week. I finished reading it in two days (it's a pretty easy read), but I'm not sure if that's because I couldn't put it down or because I just kept hoping that something exciting would happen.

This book can be summarized in one line- a divorced couple falls in love again and easily get back together.

This book has a lot going for it, maybe too much. It felt like a combination of a lot of books that I've read in the past year. It had romance, deceit, faith and religion, debt, friendships, etc. The problem I had with the book was that it didn't develop any of those themes well enough for me. I just kept waiting for the sparks to really fly or for the jealous ex-girlfriend to really do something horrible and not just dream about it. But it didn't happen, and I was left wanting a real conflict that I didn't already know how it would end. The writing was fine but nothing ground-breaking. So overall this book was okay but not special and not going to the top of my must-read list. I don't regret reading it, but I probably wouldn't pick it up again anytime soon.
