    1. Rating 3.5It was good, but the series itself is starting to be a little redundant Also the problem, Sean s guilt over a past event and the investigation of the event wasn t all that gripping I think it s actually quite hard to make a musician fully involved in a book, to much is left to the imagination Usually when it s done well you get involved in the backstage life, in this book it barely made an appearance.But the Calloway family itself is great, so it s hard to let go I ll probably be readi [...]


    2. After finishing book four in The Callaways series, I wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen with Sean and Jessica, who met and became friends during Between Now and Forever I found Jessica to be a strong, sympathetic character, and being the romantic at heart that I am, really wanted her to get her happily ever after Some back story from the previous book Jessica didn t have the most stable life growing up With a mother who was a professional dancer, they moved around frequently ch [...]


    3.

    4. I won this as a giveaway Thanks Barbara I had not read any of the Callaway series or indeed any books by this author before It didn t matter I quickly picked up what was going on and was drawn into the lives of Jessica Schilling, a young widow and her young step son Kyle who has been re united with his long lost identical but also autistic twin Brandon She moves to Sand Francisco and rents a house so the brothers can live near other Sean Callaway, considered by his father to be the black sheep o [...]


    5.

    6. I loved this book Although it took me a little while to get used to these characters It took me time to warm up to them I felt that Jess and Sean were two very different characters and somehow their easy characters from Book 4 did not flow into Book 5 After reading about the Callaways in the earlier books, they seemed to be people who had a somewhat dreamy characteristic about them It felt fictional even though their problems felt real Given an Indian context, Jess seemed to hit too close to hom [...]


    7. I don t know if these books are getting worse, or if they weren t that great to begin with but this one was like a soap opera from start to finish It wasn t bad but jeez, my head was spinning by the end I do have to say I m getting used to these characters going from love to marriage really fast I wasn t so bothered by the end proposal in this book What I was bothered by however, was the lack of her son Kyle was basically only in like 6 scenes in this book, the rest he was at school or with Nico [...]


    8. i liked the characters and premise, but I know the author can do better with writing I ve read other stuff by her, and she can do better The mystery wasn t as engaging as I would have liked, but I liked that the villain was left in doubt as to who it was The romance was inconsistent for me, I thought the characterization wavered a few times and other parts were rushed I like this author but not the story really I didn t hate it but it was just kind of meh.


    9. Sean Callaway is the black sheep in the family becoming a rock and roll musician instead of following the other Callaway siblings and family legacy of heroes Sean loves his life with his music, on the road, away from the family Especially his father Jack who always lets him no of his disappointment Sean is home in between gigs and finds Jessica, the woman he met in Angel s Bay when his sister s son Brandon and Jessica s son Kyle were kidnapped He became very attracted to her and glad he was leav [...]


    10. One piece to the Callaway family puzzle You can read it in a day If you read than one of the Callaway series and have any interest at all, you have to finish them Unless you are the type of reader that can pitch a book after reading half of it But I am an all or nothing reader, so I use them as my reading sorbet to cleanse the mind after a particularly intense read The series serves that purpose well.

    15.

    22. It s been quite a while since I read this book I usually enjoy Freethy s style of writing the way a story falls into the page for reading In the last book of Freethy s which I read That Summer Night 6 Callaways I began to lose interest in her writing because of the sexual content I don t think All a Heart Needs contained the explicit lengthy detail which 6 had I m sorry to see her writing take a steep dive into explicit content So, I guess Book 5 was the last one of Freethy s which I enjoyed for [...]
