I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
With the manipulative evil wife character (the grandmother) - here the author took the time to make her a real she-devil with hinting that her gay husband told her what to expect from their marriage before. And she only wanted his money and fame...
Well, it read smoothly, but it wasn't exactly a "good book".
The end was beyond cheesy.
And the "hints" what to expect for the happy end were not really subtle. More like directly in your face.
