I had almost given up on this series as the second book in the series, Bed of Roses was a 2-star read mostly because I thought it was a bit dull. I enjoyed this one more than I thought I would. It doesn't exactly set the world on fire in the sense of excitement, but it does a better job of keeping me interested in this small group of friends and the business they run. I actually like Parker the best of all the characters and want to read her book which is next. I am a bit of a completionist so I figured I'd knock this one out first.
