I have read most of this series. Without a doubt this is one of the most poorly written books in the entire series. In fact, its one of the worst written books I have ever read. It's full of bad writing, bad grammar, and incomprehensible sentences, that had to be read two or three times to understand. Half sentences, and one or two word sentences were common. There were many sentences beginning with "and" , "then", or "or", a good writer's "no-no". Too much gratuitous profanity , especially from Dallas. High schoolers must have written this book. I think Robb/Roberts used ghost writers here, and not very good ones at that. She should be ashamed to put her name on this type of work. Where were the editors at the publisher ? I gave it one star because it is actually one of the better story lines in the series, but its likely the last one I will read.
