I thought this would be light romance and it turned out to be a poorly written Christian novel which lacked all romance. I thought it wasn't worth the time.

I have read the entire Mercy Falls series and really enjoyed revisiting the characters through successive novels.

I did not like this as much as the first. Actually I thought the first stood out proud and strong while the second and third in the series stood apart.

These tales change and life changes, and they certainly bring to thought the ideas of society and how far we have come in our acceptance of violent and love.
