Yes. I love the series
This is only half a book, the other half follows it 'Sealed with a loving Kiss'. Felt a bit cheated that I paid a whole credit for half a book.
"Left in the Dark"
A better ending to the story, left one up in the air, maybe needs a sequel
Yes I think so.
The bombing of the waterfront and the saving of Mother & Baby
None that I can think of
Yes needs a better ending. Left a lot unexplained.
"Neither The End Nor Beginning"
This is part of the beach view series so you really needed to have read at least one or two others to understand who some of the characters were. Plus I'm sure Ms Dean isn't going to leave us all hanging since there are many loose ends to be tied up in Peggy's family alone..plus the wars not even over!
I love all of the books but I suggest you start with the first one and it will fall in line Better
