I'm actually still reading this book, but so far it's very good -- I'm liking it as much as I have the rest of the series.

I love the bits about the old house, and am still really curious to see how things are going to work out between P.J., Jeremy, and Boone. The house stuff is making me crave acquiring a big ol' house that I could fix up, myself! LOL

Susan's writing is always a pleasure to read. Her books are like a cup of comfort to me -- I know I will always find a great story waiting for me inside the covers of her work. This book was/is no different. My only (small) qualm with this one was that there were a few too many flowery descriptives, and that kept pulling me out of the story, to an extent. Otherwise, though, this is still a great book, and I'll recommend this --and the rest of the series-- to just about anyone. ;)
