I have read all of this series and at first I wasn't sure I would like this one. The other books seemed to tie in the previous characters a little more than this one. But after not giving up, I really did enjoy the story. After probably half way or so she did start mentioning more of the previous characters so that made me happy. =) I can't wait to see which character will be the main focus of the next one. All and all I would still recommend this book.
Although the beginning is a bit of a stretch, ultimately the story is compelling. The romance part of the story is great, but its secondary to the plot line about a little boy whose single mother is caught up in an INS sweep and deported. I thoroughly enjoyed this book
