I finished Karen Kingsbury's last book in the Baxter Family Series, "Sunset." Without realizing it, I started the series late. (By the way, this is a fabulous series. I only missed the Redemption phase.) This has happened to me several times. Awhile back, I picked up a book by Beverly Lewis, only to discover it was the last book of a series. You'd think I'd learn, but I did the same thing with a B. J. Hoff series. Sigh. It's necessary to pay attention to those little numbers on the cover. A friend recently gave me a book, but I won't read it until I purchase the previous books in the series. Has this happened to you?
