Latin evolution

I may have posted this here long ago but I forgot when and lost some of my references, so please forgive me if you recall this.

Anyway, I am wondering if you guys can recommend any books over the historical linguistics of Latin's evolution into its daughter languages. Ideally I envisage a book that maybe briefly goes over Latin but then breaks down each/most of the daughters. I don't really mind if it is or isn't super technical. Thanks.
