~My thoughts on this book~
I was lucky enough to be able to review the book Recovery, and also review this book that follows up where that book left off. Just like the previous book, this book kept me on the edge of my seat. I don't know alot about New Orleans, but there were places mentioned through out this book that I have visited on vacations there in the past. Ms. Weis brings the reader up to date on how Nicci and the new man in her life, Dallas, have been doing since the end of the last book. Then Nicci is faced with a decision that will change her and Dallas' relationship forever. This book has found a new home next to it's prequel on my home library shelf.
