This was the book I was most looking forward to. Kate was introduced during the first novel and I was very intrigued by her. I expected Ross to take this in a different direction, with Kate meeting the father of her son again, rather than a complete stranger. I was somewhat disappointed, but still enjoyed the novel. Kate and Alec don't get along very well at the beginning of the story. He thinks she's crazy and she thinks he cares for nothing and no one but himself. Watching the blinders fall away from their eyes about each other was lovely. I also liked the way Ross took care to write about Ross' teenage daughter and their relationship.
