A satisfying conclusion to the series, although I will miss thesenew adventures with these people It was great to get inside Jane s and to finally properly meet Jack Reid While I knew in on respect how the story would go, it was still an interesting journey Watching them come to terms with each other while going on with their mission The romance was slow burning building and never overtook the other part of the story Jack has his demons and is full of surprises to Jane and Jane A sa

Even though I really liked Jack and even Nicolas, I wasn t impressed by Jane aka the Pink Carnation. I REALLY LIKED THIS.I was so, so wary about this book, as those of you that I talk about this series with and that I dragged into it with me know well Everything after book six is so hit or miss for me the books range from not a fan at all to I liked that waythan I expected, but maybe not as much as I thought And I wanted this book I d wanted this book since she announced that we d already met Jane s hero and we spent considerable time speculating as to his identity.I wanted to l I REALLY LIKED THIS.I was so, so wary about this book, as those of you that I talk about this series with and that I dragged into it with me know well Everything after book six is so hit or miss for me the books range from not a fan at all to I liked that waythan I expected, but maybe not as much as I thought And I wanted this book I d wanted this book since she announced that we d already met Jane s hero an
I wasn t sure what to expect from this novel This series was really fun and while Book 1 wasn t my favorite, Books 2 5 were great The series reached its peak with book 6, the fantastic Betrayal of the Blood Lily After that there was a decline Or maybe I just didn t care too much about the newer characters But I think Willig is really back on form with this book It sserious than her last few,in the vein of Blood Lily, which only makes sense since Jack Reid, the hero, was first i I wasn t sure what to expect from this novel This series was really fun and while Book 1 wasn t my favorite, Books 2 5 were great The series reached its peak with book 6, the fantastic Betrayal of the Blood Lily After that there was a decline Or maybe I just didn t care too much about the newer characters But I think Willig is really back on form with this book It sserious than her last few,in the vein of Blood Lily, which only makes sense since Jack Reid, the hero, was first introduced i
review rating to come later but hint I really liked it.OKAY SO 4.5 Stars This for me, was a return to what I love about the early books The mix between farce and danger and serious stuff and arguing about what to call the donkey stuff like this is why I adored this series, and I m so glad we bookended the series with that stuff.That being said I did go into this with lowered expectations for this book so I m sure some of my love of it is associated with that, but it genuinely is g review rating to come later but hint I really liked it.OKAY SO 4.5 Stars This for me, was a return to what I love about the early books The mix between farce and danger and serious stuff and arguing about what to call the donkey stuff like this is why I adored this series, and I m so glad we bookended the series with that stuff.That being said I did go into this with lowered expectations for this book so I m sure some of my
I wasn t that into this, but, well, I kind of knew it would be a tough sell for me The series has just gone on too long and I ve grown weary of Willig s writing.I do wish we d gotten the Jane and Nicolas novella Willig apparently planned on writing I felt like I missed out on something, since so much of that relationship happened off screen.And the Colin Eloise story view spoiler was so very very silly I didn t like it hide spoiler I d have some interest in a view spoiler Lizzy Nicolas I wasn t that into this, but, well, I kind of knew it would be a tough sell for me The series has just gone on too long and I ve grown weary of Willig s writing.I do wish we d gotten the Jane and Nicolas novella Willig apparently planned on writing I felt like I missed out on something, since so much of that rel
