In an Oyster Shell – It was a classy conclusion to a wonderful series.
The Pearls – Reading this book was bittersweet because I know it is going to be the last in the series. I have really enjoyed the book and I think I can safely say this was my favorite book in the series. We get more of a glimpse into Rick Bonito’s life and you see the man behind all the stories in the series, up close for the first time. This points to the wonderful character development the author has kept solid through the entire series.
The characters in this book were unique because most of them were relatives to Amelia and Rick. It gave enlightening peek into their background and really tied the series together well.
The plot of this story was incredible. It kept me on the edge of my seat. There was great foreshadowing that kept you guessing. In the end, the conclusion still comes as a surprise.
I am sad to say good-bye to these characters. A good story is always too short. I am glad the author went out when she did. A good author knows when a story is done. Sadly, this one is done, but it was a good run. I hope you read the series they are quick, fun, easy reads.
The Sand – I would have liked to see more of a glimpse into the future of Rick and Amelia but it was a sweet ending nonetheless.
