** spoiler alert ** I waited for this book for so long, only to be mildly disappointed. A lot of things in this book don't work. The biggest of the things that doesn't work being Mark. He changed from the caring older brother to the crazy killer. He was supposed to care for Carmen and be closer to her then her own sister, but he murdered her in cold blood and then hid her body for years. It makes more sense for Mark to tell the father what Carmen said and then he could have told Chip and Chip could have killed her. It just seems a little more believable to me. Another big problem is the ending comes too simply. Chip and Drex, the bad guys, kidnap Harper and her stepbrother only to end up killing themselves. Why wasn't this drawn out a little more? I didn't even feel that there was a real danger. Where was Manfred during this? Didn't he sense that Harper was in danger? The aunt and uncle who seem to hate Harper and her stepbrother seem to be kind to the two and even ask if Tolliver's arm will be ok. They can't be all bad if they intend to keep raising the little girl who isn't related to them. Another thing that really bothers me is the relationship between step brother and step sister, which grossed me out more in the last book, but I hate the two together. I would have preferred her to end up with Manfred. There is almost nothing but talk of marriage in this book and I guess I can understand since the two have been together for years and can only depend on each other. The ending of the book is also super dull, and this is the LAST book!

Mari Cameron, not Carmen.. But I totally agree. Nothing added up and compared to the other books it was really lame.
