Don't get me wrong! The continuing story of the twins is very good, hence the 4 stars, and it's great to see how they get out of yet another scrape - but that's the point - it's yet another scrape!
I really felt that the story has been stretched just a tad too long now and, although I've loved reading the books, it's about time for a conclusion, instead of yet another plot twist that leads to yet another book. I honestly can't see how much more can be done to the twins before I end up yawning, with an 'oh dear, yet another scrape they'll just manage to get out of' attitude.
Please, Anne, let the kids go home, and the badies be finally stopped!
With luck the next instalment will see an end to the series as otherwise I get the feeling its all going to get too ridiculous and that the authors are milking it for as much cash as they can get. A good read but I'd recommend reading the whole series.
