I haven't read the first book in the series yet, but if it is about how the story started then by reading this second book I really don't need to read the first one. Talk about a cliff hanger! WHEW this is a good one!!! But, I am curious enough that I do want to read the first one to get more details of the main people in the story. This story had me happy and sad and then happy again. I love fairy tales and to me this is how I felt about this story. With every chapter good things were happening, I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop! Maybe all the bad stuff happened in the first part and so it was only the good things left to happen. The details in this story of what the people were thinking and seeing and how they felt about things and the descriptions of the places and things made me feel as if I were there and could see and feel everything along with the characters. Anyway, I feel like this is a good read and I really want to go to the first book and discover these people that came to life for me.
Unfortunately this book was not quite as good. I loved seeing Carlee and Andy's relationship. I loved seeing Carlee and Matthew fall in love.
However, I was surprised that John who was so amazing and selfless in the first book, was such a jerk in this one. In the first book,he was so excited when Beth got pregnant and was painting the room pink and buying furniture in the hopes that it would be a girl.He gave up his happiness with Beth to make sure she was able to have the love of her life Andy back in her life. In this book he checks out of his daughter's life and is not at all the man who was married to Beth. His reasons are explained but they don't really match the John we met in the first book.
Still, I could have loved this book too if it didn't keep doing things to diminish the first book. Andy tells Carlee that he didn't think he could love or miss anyone MORE that Beth, but he loves her more and will miss her more when she moves away. Well, I would have loved that line if he had said he didn't think he could love anyone or miss anyone AS MUCH as Beth.
Ok, Ok, I could have even dealt with that, but what ruined this one for me was Geni. Oh, NO! Beth didn't get her happily ever after but it seems like Geni will get Beth's daughter, and Andy's love and full time commitment too. I don't want to read about it. Geni has everything already. She is beautiful and wealthy and can cook and has a great laugh and has a great social standing and had a long, happy marriage, has great children and grandchildren and now she get's Andy too. I know life is not fair, but I was sold a love story in the first book and YES!! watching Geni, fabulous Geni get the man in the end doesn't work for me. Puts a lump in my throat and makes me wish I had stopped reading after the first book. Darn it!!!!!!!!
Not sure I will read the third book. I will check out the reviews first. But I will still recommend the first one to anyone who will listen.
Note: I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
