Just finished reading book three of the Desert Roses series and found it to be another wonderful story by Tracie Peterson. Into about three fourths of the story, I thought Rainy the heroine was the weakest most wishy-washy female I'd ever read about! First she thought she loved Duncan, then this movie star, Phillip, showed up and gave her a little attention and since Duncan had not yet declared his love for her, oh! then maybe she loved Phillip! Well, Duncan WAS a little slow! Finally Rainy got with the program! I really liked Sonny, Rainy's twin brother and their parents, and I liked Duncan. The rest of the characters, I wouldn't give a plug nickel for! The background story was very interesting and very well written. I highly recommend this series!
