I loved how sweet and gentle Ross was with Juliet before and after they were married. I loved Juliet and Ross as a couple. I also loved how Ross was with his sister Glynes. But I didn’t feel the end was really finished and didn't really care for that. I did enjoy the action and twists. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.
