3.5 stars. I did not love #1 however, this one showed some changes that I hope Ms. Swank took from previous reviews to not mimic the Rose Gardner Series. I didn't love it but I have faith in Ms. Swank's ability in developing this series. I mean, here I am as proof in that faith after not caring for the 1st book.
Carly is growing in herself and I'm pleased to see the direction she's going without having a man to complete her. I am glad she's seeing red flags and not settling for the first guy she crushes on.
Marco is quite endearing and I like his openness and loyalty he's demonstrating so far.
One thing I do not like about Carly is her lack of discretion while investigating with Marco. For her knowing and constantly referencing the small town environment of everyone knowing everyone, she sure tells just about everyone everything that's transpiring.
I'm really looking forward to #3.
