This book started really well - and I have loved the others in the series so was really looking forward to it. But it went downhill from there. The Hero was just weak to me. He is rich, successful, good looking and surrounded by a supportive family. And all he can obsess about is his bad leg. Get over it! And the heroine was not much better. She started out sassy and unique. Then makes some really stupid decisions for not very good reasons, and proceeds to whine her way through the rest of the story. Her baby was missing and instead of developing some backbone and helping in the search she just moans and groans "My baby, my baby" so many times I felt like slapping her. In fact Ian (Hero's brother) almost did exactly that, and she acknowledges that she has been useless to everyone trying to find her baby. But then continues in the same way. And the really contrived coincidence that led to Ian conveniently finding the baby was just silly. And then he also conveniently just happens to have access to a pair of twins to compensate the sad couple who had inadvertently adopted a stolen baby??? I mean are we talking babies or puppies here?? A really disappointing end to a really good series of books.
I thought book #4 in this series was going to be the best in the group. I was wrong. This book...wow...this book blew me away. And I completely ignored every single thing I needed to do in my life to read/listen to it because I absolutely could not pull myself away from this story. Wow...it was just so good!!
This book is written completely different from the others as there are events happening in present day and events happening in the past all in conjunction in the story. Every chapter takes place in a different timeframe with something incredibly shocking and shattering happening in that first chapter. Then you spend the next half of the book trying to figure out exactly how Quin and Ella got to where they were at in that first chapter. It's an incredible way to write a book and it literally kept me riveted to the story. I could not walk away. I NEEDED to know what happened and how in the world anything was going to be okay again. As a reader and a writer, it was an incredible lesson in how to create and weave an unforgettable, completely suspenseful story. I cannot stress to you how good this book was.
And I don't know what to say without giving anything away. OMG...because each and every little revelation steals your breath away as you read it. I don't want to do anything to jeopardize that experience for any other reader. These characters, this story...just wow! When I hit a book this good, I have a hard time sticking to just the audiobook, because I can read it so much faster. My hubby kept laughing at me on this one. Johanna Parker's narration was so good and her ability to express the emotion of the story was amazing. I couldn't walk away from the audiobook. So I got where I would listen to the beginning of the chapter with audio, reading along on my kindle. Then I would stop and read the last half of the chapter with just my kindle. That way I was able to move it along faster without completely abandoning the incredible narration.
So, so, so good. This entire series has been incredible, but this book was perfection. I have loved getting to know the Kinncaids and am truly sad to let them go. It's been a great series. Thank you to my friend, Amy, for pushing me to read this. It's taken me a couple of years to get to them, but that way I was able to read them all back-to-back...so it worked.
A phenomenal series!!

I enjoyed this book and the entire series. What made this story a little tough was the jumping around. I didn't care for that but the story once you figured what was going on when was pretty good. Each book is completely different and unpredictable which I find great when I read a series.
