This is my first read of Jo Goodman. I selected With All My Heart because San Francisco is one of my favorite cities. The first two chapters were slow, but once you get past the build-up and the necessary scene setting it's a great book. I haven't read the others in the series, but it didn't matter. Ms. Goodman weaves enough of the details into her story that the reader isn't left scratching her head wondering who these people are. The romance is touching, the characters well developed and the plot is full of twists and turns so you have no idea what's going to happen next. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys the city or a good romance.
