This was the final chapter to the Texas Rich series by Fern Michaels. I waited anxiously for it, but ended up being disappointed.
The premise was good, but the story was rushed, and many important elements, which would have made it a great read, were left out. For example, too much focus was given to Susan and her hatred for her dying mother (something which seemed to come out of thin air and was never mentioned in the series before), while Sawyer, Bille's devoted granddaughter and a beloved character from the previous novels, was given almost no focus on her point of view toward Billie's death.
Some of the characters I loved in past books I ended up hating. Namely Thad, whose 'devotion' to Billie in her dying days came off as him just being a total jerk, by keeping her children and grandchildren away from her (the family dynamic is one of the best parts of the story! Why cut it out by having almost no interaction between the family members?) Also, Susan was barely a focus in any of the previous novels, and the little we saw of her was enough to make her likeable, yet in the finale Fern Michaels went out of her way to make her into a detestable nutcase.
I also felt too much time and focus was given to Valentine Mitchell, a non-family member who was a blip on the radar in the other stories. She becomes the 'other woman' in Rand and Maggie's marriage when she has a one night stand with trying to redeem her character. What for? There was never any emotional attachment or investment in her. After the homewrecking was over, she could have been left out of the rest of the book, and I wouldn't have missed her a bit!
By the end of the book, I was ready for the story to be over! A sorry ending to a great series!
