OK, so I REALLY hated the the book before this one in this series. So much so that I had decided not to read any more in the series. Out of habit I ordered this one and am glad I did. It was a good read! I always liked Candy, and her dad, Doc, but the cliffhanger in the previous book just put me over the edge. This book redeemed that a great deal, so now I'm looking forward to the next one! You should probably start with the first in the series as the books look to be building up to something. RECOMMEND!
