There is a lot of life to the characters in this book and they are what makes it interesting. There is some action and some psychic phenomenon but mostly there are various love stories. These love stories are not limited to potential mates they truly encompass love in all its various forms.There are great stories of friendship and family as well as the traditional love stories.
So much is revealed in this book it is hard for me to write a summary that both does the book justice and not give away the many surprises.
Celia Marlow has been a dead but central character in these books. It was her love, care and psychic ability that have drawn the people in this book together. Even after her death she has a great impact on those she loved. She guides those who share her abilities even after her death.
There are several developing story lines in this book and it is hard to say which ones are most important. I would say Jacob and Jill are still the main characters as things all seem to travel on a winding road that always comes back to their story. Jacob is having trouble with his company's board of directors so he becomes distracted and Jill feels torn between her old life and the new life she could have. Jill's ex-husband threatens to take her daughter away and his new wife nearly kills her own sister. Even with all his distractions Jacob never gives up on Jill even when she thinks it could be over.
As you take the journey that Jill and Jacob lead you on you will find many other interesting characters like Mike (Jill's brother) and Val (Jacob's sister) who are also in love and have surpassed many obstacles to get to a place where they can be together. Val is a famous actress and they end up on Oprah when the news comes out they are married. You also find out that Mike is a great hero to the nation and a member of the Fey special forces team.
Many more characters are developed in this volume including friends and family of both Jill and Jacob. I have to say Claudia Hall Christian is very talented when it comes to character development and I will be following her as long as she is writing. I
Celia's Puppies was the second book of the series. Both the Denver Cereal books are available for free download here. I downloaded and started to read the original Denver Cereal, but I couldn't read it from the computer screen. I just wanted to curl up in bed with a good book, so I jumped to Celia's Puppies. There is a quick summary of the first book in the beginning so that I knew what was going on.
As I started to read the book I was instantly hooked (I read this book in 2 days!!). I found myself intertwined in all of the various characters lives and wanting more. Jacob Marlowe is the man that most women wish for and Jill Roper is a character we can sympathize with. One of the things that I love most about this book was the large amount of characters and how their lives cross and relate to each other. Claudia Hall Christian does an excellent job of introducing the characters slowly so that you are not overwhelmed with names. When a character is introduced they get enough of an introduction to make them memorable.
The large character list also allows for twists and turns and action. This book is full of everything; action, romance, emotions, death and even psychics! Talk about a surprise! Several of the characters have psychic abilities including the deceased Celia. I don't want to say much more about this book because I hate spoilers. I absolutely loved Celia's Puppies (I am so addicted) and think you should buy it. Immediately. If you would like to read Claudia Hall Christian's current serial fiction posts (after you read Denver Cereal and Celia's Puppies of course) go to [...]. I am going to wait for the hard copies so I can read in bed. : )
