LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the characters. When I compare this book to TUGGER'S DOWN, I liked the characters better, but the story a little less. I found it to be a little bit jumpy at times, and vague at others, but still worth the read and recommendation, without a doubt. Tommie Lyn knows how to write characters, though - I find myself never wanting the story to end. She leaves me wanting to keep her characters in my life. I felt the same way about another series, and read all 13 (800+ page) novels, and recently considered reading them again. If Tommie Lyn writes a series, I know I'd be in for the long haul.
