characters but Oldies but Goodies once Lucille burst into the picture I was settled in for a cozy ride I enjoyed the first book just a little than thisne Arthur Truluv was a character you couldn t

in the first book Thisne didn t have the same emotional pull Evangeline, a Master For Tonight Companion Novel or connection I think because there werether characters with problems it diluted the storyline Made it uite depressing at times Lucille s unusual dream visitor was an interesting addition but also took the story in still another direction Don t get me wrong I did like all the
