The story line and the loose relationship to Charleston history is a delight, as always. However, the idolization of Jack while denigrating Melanie has almost prompted me to not finish the series. I find the character development of friends and family demonizing Melanie for issues spawned from a way to cope from a childhood of abandonment while consistently bullying her about who she is, what she eats, and how she looks to be tasteless. The idolization of Jack’s deliberate verbal slights towards Melanie, his consistent withholding and lying to Melanie, and his addictions smacks of misogyny. With each book in the series, the author’s progressive idolization of Jack’s faults by praising them or ignoring them while pointing out and heavy handedly dealing with similar if not equal faults of Melanie’s has begun to make the series tedious and frustrating.
The narrator, however, does a fabulous job narrating the books.
Good book, and a good plot. Enjoyed the narrator.
I love this series! Can't wait for the next book.
wonderful book. a lot of back ground that I could have done without. I enjoy all in this series. looking forward to the next.
