I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole Bo Bradley series by this author and I think this, the last in the series, may be my favorite. Just really sorry there aren't more to read!
As always in this series, Abigail Padgett does a fine job of weaving all sorts of aspects of day-to-day life with manic-depressive illness -- especially some of the less widely-known ones -- into her character of child protection agency investigator Bo Bradley, creating an interesting and easy-to-root-for character and spinning her loose into a page-turner of a mystery story peopled with other interesting and usually believable characters. I've thought the author got just the tiniest bit overzealous and/or heavy-handed in "educating" about mental illness at spots in some of the other books in the series -- nothing TOO glaring, but just a little annoying -- but I didn't get that sensation in this book, though mental health issues play a large part in the story.
Sure will miss adventuring with Bo -- maybe Padgett will turn back to this series one day!
