this was a cute mystery with a few laughs. the narrator's delivery threw me off a bit.
quitely exit stage left
The final chapter of the Curtis black saga. (Of course, there could be a spinoff with the grandchildren and Curtina.) The synopsis described the previous drama to this family as “child’s play compared to the turmoil they are facing” now. With the hint of something coming back from the past being “unwelcomed”, I waited for something to happen…..and I waited….and then waited some more. And then I received what was supposed to be that “something”. A familial relationship was repaired & someone slipped back into their addiction with little fanfare. The one storyline that had the potential to breathe some much needed drama was with one of the youngest Black family members. And it was glazed over. The buildup of that storyline was hushed as silently as a church member raising that one finger as they walk out during Sunday morning service. This series is known for its salacious drama.
While it was nice to get some background on Curtis’ family, I feel let down. At any rate, this was a good series overall. Even when there was a lull, you still wanted to know what was going to happen next. I suppose with all the drama that the family endured this somber and somewhat bland final book was a fitting end in some respect.

desi was not a likeable character at all early on in the story. she evoked some pretty strong emotions from this reader, which is a testament to the author's talent. I couldn't connect with her on any level.
Julian I loved the insight into his character and his playboy ways. I'm sad to be almost finished with this series. They were so enjoyable and entertaining. I LOVED the narrator he did a fantastic job throughout.
It was nice catching up wit the family that started it all. While the "rules" Tessa's family seemed to abide by started off as outdated and ridiculous. The final test and the father's explanation made it all make sense. Although in the real world, I can't say how soon I would have welcomed them into my home lol...ijs
The most loveable character in this tale was the mother. I didn't connect with the heroine in this tale, but I did love alex and even diego. I would love to see him fall in love.
quick and nice
this was another short romantic story. I liked bridget's take charge attitude with Sam. cute story.
this was definitely a feel good story with 2 interesting characters. loved the pace and the emotional glimpse of the between the two that was tested.
my fave this far
this felt like a full story. I loved the plotline for this with the "muggle " and the witch. good place, good structure, flirting, minimal angst... good all around.. love this narrator
Nick & Willa's story was a bit more detailed. Where as the other books were 75% angst, this story gave us more action than the previous 2 books. It felt as if the author found her stride.....almost. I listened wanting to know what was going to happen next. It did lull during the battle between the two sisters and I found myself wanting to skip it. It was unnecessarily wordy. On to book 4, I can't wait to see who's next.
heavy on angst and repetitive dialogue
I'm 12 chapters in and there is an incredible amount of angst. At this point, I want Ivy's "secret" to just come out already. I do love the narrator's voice. Hank and Ivy are an interesting pair. I've always loved wolf shifters and romance.
Okay back to the book-The couple that was the focal point of this story was more interesting than book 1. Yet, the author kept us on the outside-skimming over the romance, the passion and the action. However, the narrator was perfect.
Overall this was a nice listen, not great, not bad just nice. I suspect this will be the model for all the books in the series. Heavy on angst & repetitive inner monologues and low on the action & romance . This means the potential to take this series from "nice" or "ok" to good and something you'll want to enjoy more than once. To bad, the author short changed herself. She has talent. At any rate, I'll return this one and listen to the next one for free on my romance package via audible.
