As much as I like these books, I think the men get away with too much. He assumes her to be a liar for most of the latter half of the book and ends up marrying her anyway! Yeah, she got mad and left but then he wrote her a brilliant letter and all is forgiven. Men.
I loved the end of the bad guy since he told Alicia how to kill him and didn't even realize until she'd stabbed him. That might have been my favorite part of the book!
