My Review:



Jackpot! The perfect ending to this captivating and heart squeezing drama was to cap it off with a healthy dose of Ms. Lunsford's feisty humor and trademark snarky banter. In contrast to the heavier negative dynamics of conflict and struggle occurring in the earlier books which focused on the characters' angsty teen-age years, Bellissimo Rilsacio chronicles their twenties with focus on recovery, personal growth, healing, and second chances, and provides a vastly more uplifting atmosphere to the plot line. The central characters are finally maturing and slowly working through the myriad issues stockpiled in the previous books. While there was still a heaping helping of drama and heartbreak, this was well tempered with clever humor and pithy verbal sparring. I greatly enjoyed the more playful and colorful humor to their arguments, as well as their easy camaraderie as they settle and discover their stride. I found this installment to be extremely satisfying and one of Ms. Lunsford's best.
