This is a great summer read. I hadn’t read the first book, although Sally L. had reviewed it for me, so I kind of knew who the characters were and what the relationships were between them. Still, I wasn’t prepared for the little bit of romance with Jeremiah at the end of the book, and I wasn’t prepared for Conrad’s complicated on-again, off-again coldness toward Belly. There will be a 3rd book, so I guess all will be resolved at that point. For now, I’m left wondering who Belly will end up with, since the ending of this book makes it clear that she ends up with someone. Any predictions?
