Wonderful example of Susan Elizabeth Phillips' talent. Characters that you care about and ones that you'd like to meet. Heath Champion's hunt for a wife leads him to matchmaker Annabelle Granger. At first these two seems destined to be adversaries but just stick around for the sparks. Secondary characters provide a great additional love story. One of SEP's trademarks is re-acquainting us with characters we've met before. Phoebe, Dan, Molly and Kevin again charm the pages. A great story read by the incredible Anna Fields.
My adult book club tries to read YA books in addition to adult books. We chose HUNGER GAMES. When I finished it, I immediately sought out CATCHING FIRE. While I wasn't disappointed, I was more surprised at some of the plot points. The ending whets my appetite for the third book, due in August. Do yourself a favor and read this outstanding series.
Picoult's MY SISTER'S KEEPER is one of the best books I've read. Now I compare all of her books against MSK;I always expect the best, but this time I was disappointed. While the story was riveting and the characters compelling, I felt that the resolution was a bit too predictable and with no true ending. The narrator added to the enjoyment of the story, but I can't whole-heartedly recommend THE TENTH CIRCLE.
