This series was intriguing and believable. All the characters were believable and added something special to the story line. At fjrst, I thought I would read this first series and see if I was going to move to the next set. Well, it didn't take long because I ordered it well before finishing the first set. I think this author will go down as one of my favorites. I recommend her highly.

I became bored of this book from page 1. I would not recommend this book to anyone. I gave it a one, but deserves a zero.
The setting in a small town in Iowa was very interesting and appealing. The characters were diverse and appealing. It was well written and a pleasure to read.
