Great book two in this fun adventure series. Lots of well developed characters that add to the layers of the story. Different touches connecting the characters together and the stories. Loved the strong heroine in this book, she wasn't a whiny little girl, she worked in trade and was proud. I enjoyed the struggle they both went through to bring back their marriage.
