That also goes to show how good the first book was, that there wasn't an indication that it would pick up again in a later book (no cliffhangers, etc.). Now I just wish the library had the 3rd book, as I hate to buy just one in a set and especially the LAST one.
If your library doesn't have it, see if they can borrow it from another branch. Any library should be able to do that. At my library we can borrow from just about any library in the country for just a $2 fee to cover postage. It's worth a shot.
