I found this book #7 boring; there is no other way to put it. I give it a 2-star rating.
I have read and enjoyed all previous books in the series except for this one. I found myself skipping pages, a lot o them, due to the plot being unrelated to the subject at hand, of little value to the enrichment of the story.
One saving grace -no pun intended- was the little drama with Jamie and Prue, I was hoping for some scandalous breach of trust or inappropriate conduct but no, it looked like it and that kept me reading.
When are they finally getting married? This series needs to pick up a bit or I'll give up on it.
