    22. Despite knowing that book 2 had ended on a cliff hanger and being eager to jump back into the story, instead it has taken me many months before I had a chance to read this book 3 It didn t take too long until I was back up to speed with most characters although took a bit longer for me to remember who Molly is This is a fabulous third book to end a trilogy with, and I believe all the lose ends are tied up neatly Loved picking back up with Philippe and Katherine s story, and the section of the bo [...]
