yes, i love jacky. but there are plenty of reviewers going on about how wonderful the series is, so i felt it my duty to add a new angle. while i love out heroine, i agree with the other reviewer that mentioned how repetetive the plot is becoming. more almost-dying, and another cookie-cutter love affair with another dashing young man (whose only original quality is being french). the book had its good bits, but i had to mark it down for how straight-up disappointing it was.it is SUCH a let down after the spectacular 5th installment, lacking the multi-layered plot, interesting new characters, and length that i had expected of it after the previous installments. i had also thought this might give a new angle to jacky's and jaimy's relationship: after years apart, are they really still a perfect match? will we see a newer, deeper aspect to their relationship? will jaimy finally meet his darling's MANY beaus and what will ensue? will they really break up, or finally tie the knot?finally, in my opinion, the book failed in giving its readers the satisfying ending they deserved. not just for the book, but for the series.
i am still left, steaming, with my questions, and hoping the next book will finally resolve things and give a better adventure than this one did.
i sincerely hope that the seventh book will match up to the greatness of its OTHER predecessors, and not to my lowered expectations.
