This was more of a 2.5 rating.
I didn't believe Gray and Lucinda as a couple. They held no interest for me mostly because their story just ended with a nice tidy bow. The whole marriage of convenience thing was a sham. He kept calling her "baby" when he wanted to get under her skirt. Bleh!
I liked the townspeople more than I did them. I kept finding that I would rather read about them than Gray and Lucy.
Grit and Dutch needed more page time.
