Now, to be honest, I did have to reread some of Lucky 13 and some of Heartless to remember all the people. In fact, it might be worthwhile for the author to place family trees in the beginning of her book with the names of the characters and all their varied roles as they grow and change. A little like Stieg Larsson did in his Millennium Series. Helps keep everyone straight so we can devote more time to reading.
Well the twins have not changed. Ray Reynolds and Raif Gauthier are still wonderful, sensitive men worth spending time with. I love the challenges Perry gives them.
The reader encounters everything from loss of spouse to many, many grandchildren, and a crazy-ass killer who happens to be the son of a former adversary, and out for revenge. I also love the way we find out about the facts of life regarding certain friends and how forgiveness reigns as the only way to go. This book has many positive messages that I believe the world can use: Importance of family, by forgiving you grow bigger than who you are, and love can overcome any challenge. Must read!
Keep them coming, Janet, I'm absolutely hooked. Can't wait for number 4.
This installment tears at the heartstrings even more than the first two, but out of tragedy, new love blossoms even stronger. There is not an emotion that this one does not touch. The characters become real people in this saga, and you will weep and scream and laugh. Strange to say, you will even have a modicum of affection for the villain. How Ms. Taylor-Perry manages to make you care about the bad guy is beyond me, but more power to her. And get busy with the next story!
