It's basically a catch up of the series but it has really cute and funny moments in it. If you haven't read the first half of the series . It maybe a little hard to follow.
This is a cute novella. 95 pages. Arianna and Finn get married at the end. To much cussing and really not necessary. The story did not need it. I really do not like novellas and do not normally buy them. But this series needed this one....because of the marriage.................d
