Hmmm....round up to 3 1/2I liked this book. but something fell flat. I LOVE Connie Brockway. I think her voice is beautiful.So, maybe my expectations were too high?I really liked the H/h. They're both my favorite types of characters but they weren't fleshed out as well as I like.Mostly, the plot is where I had my issues. I just couldn't buy into the story-line behind Helena.This is the second of The Rose Hunters series.I enjoyed the first of this series and will definitely read the last.
