This book five in the "Hathaways Series". This are stand alone books so don't feel that you have to read them in order, although it is nice to catch up with the previous Hero's and heroine's . Lisa Kleypas is a great author and I had been wanting to read this last book but I did feel it wasn't the best book of the series. I think I had just built up the this book so much in my mind and that hurt me when reading it. I glad to have read this book and hope that you enjoy it too!
