By far, this is my favorite book of the Blue Bloods series. Certainly, it is a page turner. I enjoyed how De La Cruz put together this novel using the perspectives of three female characters: Schuyler, Mimi and Bliss, each one of them intertwined by a central theme, love with its decisions and consequences.
The book is refreshing and written with simplicity. The dialog is clever and effective so the reader can understand what drives each character. The Van Alen Legacy shows De la Cruz writing at her best.
