{Synopsis} – Janie’s two families appear to have made peace. Life seems almost normal. She’s even decided to speak to her former boyfriend, Reeve, again. But then Janie’s Connecticut father suffers a sudden stroke, and this tragedy leaves her mother reeling. Janie must step in to manage family finances and to support her mother emotionally.

While handling her father’s business matters, Janie discovers the one undeniable fact that could destroy both of her beloved families. And she alone must decide what to do.

{My thoughts} – This book summed up the entire series in a sense. I wasn’t pleased with the different point of views in which it had been written. It had switched from Janie, Reeve and Brian throughout the book which was more then annoying in my honest opinion. I was actually rather surprised at what she had found but even more surprised that she and Reeve had gotten back together after the last book. I also couldn’t believe how well both families were getting along that they allowed their non-kidnapped children the right to spend as much time as they wanted at the Johnson’s house. If I were the Springs I would never be able to allow the kidnappers by proxy anywhere’s near the children I had been able to raise. It just seems wrong to me and there Brian was spending the whole summer at the Johnson’s I don’t get how the Spring’s went from overprotective to just about not caring at all. But it is a book and it looks like it was meant to end happily ever after and sometimes happily ever afters are far to forced for them to make any real sense.

Final Conclusion: 3 Star Rating.
