I enjoyed this book almost as much as I enjoed the first book. I felt that the main character wasn't as strong as she was in the first book. However, the mystery was good. I liked that her children played a bigger part in this book. However, I'm not a fan of the extended family and I'm not sure I will like the direction this book is heading.
