This shouldn't be a spoiler because it's more or less given away in the description: "Civil engineer Amy Bradshaw - Kendall's ex-fiancé - fled Sweetne..Show More »ss years ago, taking a personal souvenir with her." Why is it that whenever young love is thwarted she ends up pregnant with a baby she never told him about because she wanted to be loved and not married as an obligation? I know, because it makes good fiction, and this is fun, escapist, fiction. And I really enjoy the premise of three brothers trying to rebuild the town they grew up in after it's been abandoned for over ten years after being destroyed by an F5 tornado. I enjoy the picture of Sweetness, (though not the name, too icky-sweet, Sweetwater I could have understood but who would name a town "Sweetness"?). It's getting a little odd, from the first book we have all these men and women who've come together more or less in a big matchmaking plan, and none of them are living together? All the men are still living in the bunk house and all the women in the boarding house. It just felt a little unreal. If this were a book with the premise of a community who all believe in abstinence until marriage it would make more sense to me, but the combination of sex scenes and no men overnight rules which are only, as far as we see, broken by the three brothers... it just didn't flow for me. Still, I liked the characters and wanted to see how things came out.
Unfortunately I really didn't like book three, which probably means I'll never listen to the series again.
