    Another great read I enjoyed this story but the ending just seemed open ended. I would recommend this book to others along with all Inglath Cooper books.

    Addy is a successful lawyer with a stale-but-solid marriage - or so she thinks, until she pops home unexpectedly one day to find her husband cavorting with his pregnant young lover in his and Addy's bed. Fast forward to the day their divorce is finalised. Addy's stuck in New York City for the night, and runs into her high school best friend, Culley. They catch up on old times, and somehow end up in bed together, which leaves Addy remorseful in the morning. Fast forward once more, and Addy's back Addy is a successful lawyer with a stale-but-solid marriage - or so she thinks, until she pops home unexpectedly one day to find her husband cavorting with his pregnant young lover in his and Addy's bed. Fast forward to the day their divorce is finalised. Addy's stuck in New York City for the night, and runs into her high school best friend, Culley. They catch up on old times, and somehow end up in bed together, which leaves Addy remorseful in the morning. Fast forward once more, and Addy's back in her Virginia hometown looking after her mother and the family business, only to find that Culley wants to look after her. This is another book that I vaguely remember quite liking, only to find out that this time around it felt quite flat and uninteresting. I've read one other book of Inglath Cooper's (A Man to Believe In / The Lost Daughter of Pigeon Hollow), and while that was a gentle, easy book it had a certain sweetness and sparkle that this one seemed to lack. I think "flat" is the only way I can really describe Unfinished Business. There didn't seem to be much in the way of storyline - a whole bunch of disparate elements (Addy's divorce, a plot to drive her family's orchard out of business to force them to sell, Culley's alcoholic ex-wife getting out of prison, the rescuing of a baby deer) were thrown together but somehow created an end product with no real defining characteristics. Hero and heroine were unremarkable, neither likeable nor unlikable for me. Supporting characters seemed one-dimensional. It wasn't an awful book, but it's probably not one I'd want to read again. Although it does have a rather nice looking recipe for apple pie in the back, which has caused me to round up rather than down. (I'll let you know how the recipe turns out.) 2 1/2 - 3 stars.
