I liked the dual love stories and the character intros for the next books were better weaved into the story instead of plopped down into the town like in the last couple books, which I appreciated.
I was disappointed that Ford became just a male placeholder character. Oh, but he's a Navy SEAL, he must be stoic. Bah. His personality was almost completely left out and I have no idea why Isabel fell for him now or when she was 14. Not that I didn't like Ford, I did, but he was just there. No opinions, no conflict. We see way more interaction from Ford's brother Kent and his ex-friend Leonard and I liked them more because of it.
Not a bad read. I like it way better than the last one.
