I think I liked this one better than the first book!  They both had some predictable elements but it was still fun to see how things played out.  I felt that a disproportionate amount of time was spent on the side stories of Rosie's brother and father compared to what they contributed to the plot and/or motivation of the main characters.  Another minor character appeared for a more reasonable amount of time and I felt had a bigger impact on the plot resolution as well as giving insight to the male lead's personality.  This had more depth, tackling some serious issues among the characters, though it could have gone deeper.
