After finishing Ashley's story from the series and being extremely disappointed, I was glad that this one was so much more fun. I thought Steve and Melissa worked really well together. There was a point where Melissa was a bit frustrating and somewhat immature but the reasons Miller gave was credible enough.
I actually think it was one of the best one out of the series. I was slightly disappointed that Tessa and Tom won't get their own story (theirs were included here) but I can't wait to read more about he Creed cousins.
I know some of the reviews felt the book was slow but I really think that's Miller's style. She definitely takes her time to tell a story but I didn't mind.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book .
I was just looking for a diversion while sittimg in waiting rooms. It was so good I went back and read several others in the same series. Do look for the others and read it in sequence.
First, I love Linda's works, and this one is better than the other two in this series, but this one is a bit slow. I do love that Linda puts the stray dog adoption into each novel somehow, but sometimes it's kind of hokey. I kind of think the percotious 5 year old is more like a percotious 15 year old but it was an interesting twist.
