More About Melody Carlson
I started writing "professionally" about twenty years ago. I quickly learned that I'm a fast writer and, as a result, I've published more than 200 books--with more than 6 million books sold. And it stuns me to write out those numbers today. How did that happen? I've been told I'm in the top twenty "most prolific authors" of all time. Although I'm not certain this is true, it does make me wonder--and I wonder how other authors (in previous generations) managed to write so many books without the use of a computer. Last year I won a Career Achievement Award from Romantic Times. But that doesn't mean I'm ready to retire. I have lots more books coming out and new ideas popping into my head all the time. I write from a studio right next to the house I share with my husband in Oregon. My dog Audrey goes to work with me every morning. I have to say...it's a pretty good life...and I am grateful to God for every bit of it.

This book is great i couldnt put it down i read it all in 3 days and am so excited to get the nxt book in the series!! :)
So-so Dec 11, 2008
I have read all of the books in this series so far. While I enjoy reading these, I find the storylines and the characters are getting progressively more annoying.
While in the first two books we are slowly introduced to each character, by book 4 (this one is book 4) we are now pretty familiar with all of them. I have to say that I find Taylor's character to be the most interesting but I am starting to get absolutely annoyed with the DJ character. For one thing, she is way tooooo perfect - although things seem to happen to her - somehow she just smiles and makes it all disappear. I am exagerating, but that is the message behind the writing when it comes to this character. I mean DJ absolutely is in passive/reaction mode ALL THE TIME. Somehow, she just seems to sit there and EVERYTHING and EVERYBODY just seems to happen to her. It would be soooo nice to actually see DJ be pro active for a change.
Also, the character of Conner has got to go. I mean he has now dumped (and wanted back) DJ twice and yet!! she still manages to 'like him and be his friend'. What a great message to send to YA out there, its okay if the guy keeps dumping you for someone else - always be there waiting for him and whatever you do - don't ever call him on it.
Also, the religious tone in this book is getting a little bit over the top. I thought this theme was well-blended into the storyline in the first few books, but in this one - the author does not even bother to hide her preachy side. The conversation between DJ and Conner about sharing a bed was just too out there - especially since they were actually talking about sharing a bed and NOT about sex.
I will probably continue to read the other books in the series only because I am curious to see how this will turn out - but I have to say that I am worried about the future releases.
