My editor is always saying to me, the stakes aren't high enough! Raise the stakes! It really annoys me because I'm cool with books that nothing much happens in and everyone is nice to each other. But in the case of this book, I get what she means. The stakes weren't high enough. If its all about her brother, why do we care? He's a cad. The writing, no surprise is excellent, but the story just wasn't compelling enough for me.

I just started it!

Brandi I TOTALLY agree with your assessment of this book. I was SO excited because her 1st book rocked...but this one felt "flat" to me and never really went anywhere.
