I am big fan of Gwynne Forster but this was not my favorite book. There was no real drama in the book. I think if Heather had gotten kidnapped in Columbia or even taken one of the Ambassador posts it would have been much better, There was nothing more than her misgivings about marriage. She could have searched for her mother or even had her find out more about her mother since she grew up in the same town where Judson came from.
As usual I love reading about the Harringtons but there was something that I missed. I thought that it would have been much easier if they would have just had the dna test done on Judson from the moment they met him since he did in fact look exactly like Drake. This was missing a lot of the detail that I have come to expect from Ms. Forster.
