THIS IS THE FIRST OF THE MACKENZIE BOOKS THAT FELL A LITTLE SHORT IN MOST AREAS. I AM NOT SURE WHAT WAS MISSING. IT WAS GOOD BUT NOT ONE I WOULD READ AGAIN REAL SOON LIKE I WOULD THE OTHER MACKENZIE BOOKS. LINDA HOWARD IS STILL ONE OF MY TOP AUTHORS AND I HAVE FOUND VERY FEW THAT I WOULDN'T READ OVER & OVER. THIS ONE JUST DIDN'T HAVE THE SIZZLE THE OTHER ONES DID. I AM GLAD IT ENDED WITH FAMILY BECAUSE THAT IS ALWAYS GOOD.
The story was okay, but the narrator was awful! The only emotion that he seems to be able to portray when he's doing a female voice is boredom. I listened to each of the Mackenzie books available in audio format because I like the stories and author, but had to force myself to finish each one because of the poor narration. The only complaint I have about the stories themselves is that I didn't like how the perspective changed back and forth between the main characters without notice or clear indication.
Where is the novels dealing with Alex and Josh Mackenzie, and will there be others, maybe with the grandchildren. Please do not let this be the end!!!
