I only have one issue with the book I wanted more, I needed more. I felt the story could have been longer and I was not completely happy with the ending it felt a little unfinished. Do not get me wrong this is a wonderful book to read and if you have read the others in the series you will agree with me how talented Christina Butrum is with this Maple Glen Series.
