This is a charming series. Rose is a likable character and I like that she is becoming more assertive. In this novel Rose has some choices to make, and her sister obviously doesn't approve of Joe. Between her choices and jury duty she has her hands full. Rose is charming and Joe is like the perfect guy, but you keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. Rose's visions are an interesting aspect of this series, but they aren't the primary means of solving the mysteries. There are definitely more mysteries in store for Rose and while books 1 and 2 were both fun and interesting, I can't help but worry that the same old scenarios might get old in later books in the series. Still, doubts aside, I believe I will take the plunge and start on book 3. ​

After coming away from Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes with mixed feelings, I decided to give this next installment a try because, while I had (for the most part) enjoyed the plot of the previous novel, I remained unconvinced as to the plausibility of its main protagonist - Rose Gardner. I decided it was only fair to allow her character (and the others as well) a chance to develop before dismissing the series outright. However, this installment merely proved that despite Rose's supposed transformation in Book #1, she ultimately hadn't changed a bit. She continued to behave rashly and irresponsibly throughout the entirety of the novel, and the constant chaos and events which ensued as a result of her poorly planned antics were just plain silly rather than endearing. Furthermore, she (again) required constant rescuing, not only from Joe this time, but from a new character as well. I felt that there were just a few too many coincidences involved for this plot to be believable, and it was disappointing to see that Rose had not actually matured as a heroine whatsoever, other than taking on a more confrontational persona.
