Didn't enjoy this one as much as her other books. Michelle was too distant for too long. Although I guessed the big secret shame, it was revealed far too late in the story. Phil was an utter doooooofus and Anne should have left him. Even the dogs in the story weren't as loving. Still some cute things - the love of books, Lily, and I enjoyed seeing glimpses of the townsfolk we met in previous books. MORE LORCAN.
