This entire series is fantastic! I adore Dom & Kate. The dynamic between their two families is both endearing and so hysterical. I loved the fact that all the books are together too. I will definitely go back and revisit these characters. The additional story of Kyle & Demi were absolutely perfect. A must read. ...more

I was raised mostly in Nebraska, partly in Arizona. My family is from Chicago. I wear many hats, but my favorites are Mom, Anthropologist, and CSI.
