Recommendation: If you've read Visiting Lilly, hold onto your seats, you'll love this book even more! If you're new to the series and are thinking of picking it up, I'd recommend it to lovers of mystery, cop dramas, and those who enjoy rich characters and deep character connections.
Saving Anna takes place barely a year after Visiting Lilly and starts off on a solemn note. Frankie and Talbot retain much of their charm from the first book while easily expanding both their relationship with each other and how they interact with the outside world. Frankie's idiosyncratic habits and Talbots heroistic fault have both of them metaphorically tripping over each other endlessly and much to great humor and other emotions. Watching their interactions was the highlight of the book and the most enjoyable.
While the characters were amazing, they were brought to life with a deep and rich story full of twists and turns, ah ha moments, and a mystery that even on the last page, kept you guessing. The villain in Saving Anna was dastardly, worrying of being written against such strong heroes and brought a tension and anger to the story that left no room for questioning Talbot or Frankie's motives.
As you can tell I really enjoyed Saving Lily. When I finished Visiting Anna and was asked to read and review Saving Lilly I said yes, not knowing I would ultimately fall wholly in love with Frankie and Talbot the way I did. I liked the first one, loved the second. Saving Anna was a fantastic and logical progression for both Talbot and Frankie to take and I'm glad to have had the opportunity to take their adventure with them.
