Story is not good. And I had a major problem with the audiobook narrator.

This is book 2 in the series. Book 1 was pretty good, but this is skipable. You can probably continue the series without it. It is not romance. It is mostly mystery and catching

Many neat ideas and stories, but too sad for me. Kids were abused.

3 stars. It has a slapstick feel. I did not laugh but it kept my interest.

Characters were good, kind of comic-book-like. There is a happy ending with romance, but I wanted an epilogue. BTW there are no babies in this book. The plot has to do with di

2 stars. Plot was incomplete and not well thought out. Relationship not interesting enough.

I chuckled several times in the first chapter. Then for much of the story, I was bored. Finn loves Tessa but feels she deserves someone better, so he plans to

Good story. Engaging. Interesting characters and conflicts. But too many flashbacks.

FLASHBACKS:
This could have been 4 or 5 stars, but the frequent use of flashbacks was annoying and kept making me angry. Who is telling authors to use flashbacks??????
