Have been reading many reviews, it's all so bittersweet. Really hoping I win and can read this story by such a fantastic duo.

It is just so sad that both Joyce and Jim left us so too soon. I not only miss any more new books coming out, but miss following Joyce's daily postings on facebook. I wish this series could have gone on much longer. Thanks for the chance to win this one.
