Just Beyond the Clouds by Karen Kingsbury

Usually romance sequels to romance novels aren't that great. Just Beyond the Clouds is no exception.
The plot focuses more on Cody's brother CJ, and a Downs Syndrome school he goes too in Colorado Springs. This is definitely a good thing as it adds greatly to the plot. After Ali's death, Cody doesn't have a very good view on life and discourages his attending the school. But then the stubborn teacher invites him to come and sit in on a class one day. After that, Cody finds himself falling in love with the teacher.
I don't like replacement romances. I'll just get that out in the open right now. I think that they're cop outs, something to keep the public happy.
The characters remain mediocre, as they were in the first book. The plot is easy to figure out. I think it could have been better without multiple hospital trips.
But I do applaud Karen for her ability to make a nonsensical title like Just Beyond the Clouds actually work.
