This was a good end to the series and after 9 books with the same characters it's nice to move on to some new ones. I'm looking forward to starting the next series of Kathy Herman. I would recommend this book and this series.

I greatly enjoyed this series. I'm sad to see it end not knowing what happens with Brandon and Kelsey. I will definitely be reading the next series to find out.

I've liked the stories in this series, but this one seemed drawn out to me. I also find it irritating that the character's full names and titles are used every time they reappear. It almost makes me feel like the author doesn't think I'm smart enough to know who's who from one scene to the next.

Such a great story with a couple of great messages. This is the last book in the series. That is always a sad thing for me.
