To say that these women have trust issues is an understatement but it’s also what makes this story a fun read. They don’t fall immediately into the head over heels romance that so often happens. They earn each others’ respect and friendship first. It’s a slow progression and the reader gets to see what the characters are thinking and feeling as the move towards friendship and beyond. The character development is interesting and worth watching as the story unfolds.
