The continuation of the soap opera. And just like the last one... it's to be continued for one of the storylines in the book. Some characters from the first book are featured in this book, some disappear off the radar. Our cast of characters is slowly changing as more are introduced. I hated the Cox family in this book and unfortunately, they are to be featured in the next book. Going to have to push my way through that one to get to the next. This series is definetly not up to the standards I associate with a Macomber novel. If I was just reading one at a time, I'd quit right here, but seeing as I own the entire series (10 books at this point but she's planning on writing more) I'm committed to the series now. The main cliffhanger of what happened to Dan was finally answered and the to be continued is about a couple I could care less about who do nothing but bicker, fight and argue bitterly. For a romance series, this series has way too much divorce in it for my tastes.
