Book Order: Watermelon (1), Rachel's Holiday (2), Angels* (3), Anybody Out There?* (4)
* indicates a book I have read
This is the third book I've read by Keyes and so far it is my favorite. The writing was emotional without being overly sappy and the secondary characters peppered the plot with humor and kept a lighthearted tone to a serious story. Technically, this is the fourth entry in Keyes's series about the Walsh sisters, but it is also an excellent stand-alone novel.
I like that this series is not exactly a series. Each book tells its own story but all of them are connected by the relationship of the Walsh sisters, with every book focusing primarily on just one sister. While most of the characters appear in multiple books, there's no real need to read all the books to understand or appreciate the others, and there's also no need to read them all in order. Do you read a series starting with book one or do you occasionally skip around?
