Like some of the other reviewers, I found this book a little bit more difficult to follow due to the detail of some of the mechanics of everything. And Connie as a heroine was a little bit harder for me to warm up to. But in a way, that just made the payoff that much more rewarding. After all, the whole point of Connie was that she could reel off specs and formulas like nobody's business, but she couldn't quite relate to the human beings around her. And Big John (although with that nickname I had a hard time getting a burly mountain man out of my head, which wasn't, I think, the persona that I was supposed to get into), with his mechanical mind but huge heart, is the one man on earth who can see both those parts of her. HEA indeed.

I suppose the mechanics should have taken this down a notch or two for me, but as I've said before, I base my ratings on how hard it is for me to put a book down and, darn it, if I could have justified calling in sick in order to finish this book I would have. As it was, I stayed up WAY too late two nights in a row.

Some highlights for me were the visit home -- one of my favorite families ever (oh, how I hope we get a Noreen book!), and the integration of Connie into that was just beautiful. We don't get too much of Kee and Archie, but that was o.k. with me. The scenes with "the Majors" (a few of which were from Emily's POV), more than made up for it. The poker scenes, ditto.

I am so tempted to move directly on to Night Stalkers #4, but #5 isn't out yet (I don't think) and I need to savor for now so I am forcing myself to hold back.
