I liked the MC's better in this book than I did with #2's. I did think that Serenity was slighty virginal and flushing left and right. I liked Jackson and the scene with him, Serenity and Muff were very nice. I think the forgiveness happened fast as well as the crushing. But that has been a recurrent issue for me the entire series.
When the SS comes out with Muff later in Dec, I'll be likely to read that one as well.
